For those of you who aren’t familiar with pro-life activism on college campuses, here is Chalk Day in a nutshell, via Students for Life of America:
With a handful of chalk and an arsenal of pro-life slogans, you can leave a lasting impression on hundreds or even thousands of people.
Step 1: Pick up sidewalk chalk (Walmart, drug stores, Hobby Lobby)
Step 2: Collect your pro-life friends (this is optional, but helpful)
Step 3: Find a heavily trafficked public area
Step 4: Chalk short pro-life messages in large letters everywhere
Example Messages You Can Use:
Abortion Hurts Women
Women Need Love Not Abortion
Restore Preborn Rights
Human Rights for All: Born & Preborn
Heartbeat Begins Beating at 21 Days
Social Justice Begins in the Womb
Adoption Not Abortion
Love them both
Abortion = Preborn Genocide
True Feminists are Pro-Life
Peace Begins in the Womb
Planned Parenthood Protects Rapists
Pro-choice = No-choice
End the War on Preborn Children
Women Regret Abortion
Equal Rights for Preborn People
Draw 3,500 baby feet or hearts and chalk “Abortion Stops 3,500 Hearts Every Day”
You can get more ideas for religiously neutral slogans from Secular Pro-Life’s Zazzle store.
Chalk Day is most common in the college setting, where many student organizations use sidewalk chalking to advertise. But since chalk is easily removed at the end of the day, you can also participate in Chalk Day in public spaces like parks, plazas, and (of course) the sidewalks outside of abortion facilities. If you chalk on the public sidewalk outside an abortion center, we recommend messages about the crisis pregnancy assistance available in your community, including a phone number.
