  • American Life League will present its 10th annual Training and Activism Week, January 20-23 in Washington, D.C. This year we are bringing together an amazing group of pro-life activists and speakers who will entertain, inspire and equip you with the tools you need to ensure that all human beings are respected and protected by law from the beginning of their biological development.

    Presentations from ALL staff include ALL executive director Shaun Kenney; Jim Sedlak, founder of STOP Planned Parenthood; Rita Diller, national director of STOPP; Johanna Dasteel, ALL's senior congressional liaison and personhood project director; Michael Hichborn, the ALL researcher who helped expose CCHD-funded groups acting in defiance of Church teaching and Michael Barnett, director of LiveCampus.

    Additional distinguished guest speakers include Deal Hudson, Jill Stanek, Rev. Johnny Hunter, Dr. Dianne Irving and more. The Pro-Life Blog Awards will be one of the highlights of the week, as ALL recognizes those who are at the forefront of using the internet to bring attention to the plight of the preborn.

    Join Rock for Life's Erik Whittington, Jeff McLain and Kortney Blythe as they lead inspirational workshops and propel the upcoming generation toward unparalleled involvement in pro-life activism. There are also free concerts on Thursday and Friday night that are sure to motivate you.

    Registration for the conference is absolutely free, but you must register soon in order to reserve your place. A limited number of hotel rooms are still available on site at a cost of $50 per night, per person, with a minimum of four people in a room. As the March for Life approaches, hotel accommodations will be at a premium. Act now!
