Chalking is a fun and easy way to get your club active and spread the pro-life message at your high school or on your college campus. You can reach students with a life-affirming message of love and hope and have fun in the process!
This September, Students for Life of America is hosting a Pro-Life Chalk it Up Contest! We want to see how creative you can get with sharing the pro-life message! By the end of September, we will choose a high school and college winner who will receive free Rock for Life gear and national recognition! Email pictures of your pro-life artwork to [email protected] with your group president’s contact information and school information. You can also post pictures on social media using #sflachalkitup.
What’s in the Box?
1 Box of Sidewalk Chalk
1 List of Sidewalk Sayings
25 Rock for Life Postcards
How to Use the Box:
Before you chalk, look through your school’s student handbook and make sure there are no policies regarding chalking. If you attend a public school, you have legal rights to chalk, but private universities or high schools might limit you. Make sure your group is following your school’s protocol. Once you have confirmed that you can chalk at your school, map out where you want to meet your group and what areas you will cover.
Pick a date and time when most of your group members are available. Make sure you have enough chalk for everyone to cover the space needed. Photocopy the list of sayings provided and distribute them to the group. Have everyone disperse throughout the area and chalk as much as possible! Instruct everyone in the group to take pictures and post them on social media using the hashtag #sflachalkitup.
When writing messages and saying, use life-affirming words and provide resource information. Here are some examples:
- “Have you had an experience with abortion? Contact (insert your local post-abortive counseling center’s information) for help.“
- “Pregnant? Want help? (insert your local Pregnancy Resource Center’s information)“
- “Abortion Stops a Beating Heart“
- A person’s a person, not matter how small“
- “Adoption: The Loving Option“
- “Abortion Hurts Women”
