Students for Life of America, now in its 10th year, continues to grow! We are so pleased to welcome two new staff members to our stellar team:
Camille Rodriguez was raised in Alamosa, CO and graduated from Colorado State University in 2009 with a B.A. in History. It was there that her passion for life was ignited while volunteering with Justice for All on different campuses throughout northern Colorado. She co-founded CSU Students for Life and served as President in 2008 and 2009. After moving to California, she began working with Culture of Life Family Services as their Campus Outreach Coordinator. She worked with pro-life clubs in San Diego County, lead apologetics trainings for schools and youth groups and taught Theology of the Body to middle school youth. At Culture of Life, she also served as a crisis pregnancy counselor, working hand in hand with the Abortion Pill Reversal Program, providing resources to women including free ultrasounds, adoption services and daily support. Camille is thrilled to continue working with the Pro-Life Movement on a much larger scale through Students for Life.
Camille is a lifelong ballerina.
Jillian Ferguson was born and raised in Alpena, MI. She attended Central Michigan University for four years while pursuing her undergraduate degree in Political Science with a concentration in international relations and a minor in math. She graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2016.
Jillian became actively involved in the pro-life movement during her sophomore year of college and soon became the vice president of the Students for Life group at CMU. During her two years as vice president, she was instrumental in hosting several national pro-life displays and informative tabling events, bringing renowned pro-life speakers to campus, being featured on both local and national news forums, and overall doing her part to help change today’s current culture to one that values life from the moment of fertilization to natural death.
She was inspired to become more active in the pro-life movement because she believes abortion harms women and she wants to do whatever she can to stand up for women’s rights as well as the rights of the whole, distinct, and beautiful preborn.
Jillian will be joining the Students for Life of America team as the Southwest Regional Coordinator, a position created to equip, engage, and train pro-life student groups in Texas and Oklahoma on how to effectively discuss the controversial topic of abortion. She is beyond excited to begin saving babies and helping women through student activism all over the country!
