The 34th Annual March for Life in Washington, DC this past Tuesday, January 22nd, was awesome! Around 200,000 people, young and old, marched from downtown D.C. to the Supreme Court to proclaim the message that all human life is sacred! Like every year, Crossroads took part in many events the weekend leading up and including the March for Life. Over 20 volunteers came in from schools across the country to help recruit people for our summer 2007 walks and to spread the pro-life message.
We spoke at 4 churches the weekend of the March, gave out over 20,000 pro-life stickers, and sold hundreds of pro-life t-shirts for students to wear at their schools back home. Below is a listing of events that we attended.
