2020 National Pro-Life Summit Details

Brenna Lewis - 16 Jan 2020

The biggest pro-life training event in the world, the first-ever National Pro-Life Summit, is on January 25th! For all of the important details… you’re in the right place. If you are a group leader or otherwise a coordinator of a group that will be attending, please make sure you pass this along to all your group members, so they have these important details as well!

National Pro-Life Summit Logistics

Date: Saturday, January 25th, 2020
Time: 7:30am – 5:30pm
Location: The Marriott Marquis, 901 Massachusetts Ave NW, Washington, DC 20001

Registration: This year, we are working hard to streamline the check-in process by using a new system. Each attendee will check themselves in using tablets, and your personalized name badge will print out on site. Because this will likely increase the amount of time it takes to check in, we will be starting onsite check-in at 7:30am. Groups will be checking in as individual members, so it is extra important that rosters get turned in ASAP (they were due on 1/9). If your group will not have finalized names by January 13th, please respond to this email to make sure your roster gets into the system.

Parking: It’s $35 to park for the day at Marriott Marquis when you mention Students for Life. First come first served as they have limited parking. Should the Marriott lot fill up, additional options include the Renaissance Hotel or PMI Parking (900 New York Ave NW).

Download the App

The National Pro-Life Summit will be a huge event with a sold-out crowd of 3,100 attendees and a lot of moving parts, including more than 30 workshops and side events! Thankfully… there is an App! Make sure to download it before the Summit to make your experience go even smoother. On it, you can view the schedule, check out the exhibitors (booths), and so much more. My pro tip is to take a look at the workshops & sessions that will be offered, choose the sessions you want to attend, and create a custom schedule on the App. And no worries – the App is free!

Breakfast & Lunch

There will be grab-and-go breakfast items available from carts located on the lobby level for purchase. Lunch will be provided and is part of your Summit admission.
