September is quiet, but October is going to be very busy.
Friday, October 6 and Saturday, October 7 is the Vitae et Veritas (Life and Truth) conference at Yale University. Secular Pro-Life will have an exhibit table with free literature. Come say hi!
Saturday, October 14 is the Students for Life of Illinois conference at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, where we will also have an exhibit table.
Friday, October 20 through Sunday, October 22 is the Life/Peace/Justice conference in Pittsburgh, hosted by our good friends at Rehumanize International with help from the pro-life student organizations at Duquesne and Pitt. Secular Pro-Life president Kelsey Hazzard will speak on “Maximizing the Pro-Life Reach: Pro-Life Apologetics from a Secular Perspective.” (Also, it’s not set in stone yet, but we may do another Sunday morning “infidelicious” breakfast!)
Finally, it’s not too early to be thinking about Roe v. Wade anniversary activities in January. As always, there’s the March for Life in Washington, D.C. and the Walk for Life in San Francisco, and the respective Students for Life of America east and west coast conferences.
Also in D.C., the Cardinal O’Connor Conference on Life (which I probably don’t have to tell you is Catholic) has invited us to participate in a panel on this year’s theme: “(Ir)religiously Pro-Life: The Future of the Movement in a Secular World.” That will take place on January 20, which is the same day as the Students for Life of America east coast conference. To solve the two-places-at-one-time problem, we anticipate needing more volunteers than usual this year. If you’re interested in helping out, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “January volunteering.”
