Are you pro-life in belief only, or do you actually put those beliefs into action? As pro-lifers, we need to be compassionate to our peers on campus. We must be a kind supporter of those men and women who need our help. If you were to encounter a pregnant student on campus, how would you help her? Would you judge her for her situation, or would you celebrate her decision to choose life for her child? Do you know what resources are available to her?
Any school, public or private, that receives federal funding (such as financial aid) This month, we challenge you to get the word out to pregnant and parenting students. Let them know that they are supported and that they have rights!
What’s in the Box
- 1 Pregnant on Campus Marketing Guide
- 1 copy of Pregnant and Parenting Students’ Rights (National Women’s Law Center)
- 25 Pregnant on Campus promotional cards
- 10 Pregnant on Campus promotional flyers
- 35 Pregnant on Campus “Know Your Title IX Rights” flyers (5 of each, 7 flyers)
How to Use the Box
Pregnant and parenting students need to know that they are supported on campus. Many students are unfortunately unaware of the resources available to them, and still others do not know that their student rights must be protected thanks to Title IX guidelines
- Add your student group’s name to your flyers to show that your group is sponsoring this campaign effort.
- Go to your Pregnant on Campus flyers approved by your Student Activities Office.
- If you are on a large campus, make more copies of your flyers to ensure that your flyers are noticed!
- Assign your members into teams to post flyers around campus. You will want to focus on areas that provide posting (e.g. bulletin boards) as well as high traffic areas of campus. Key spots include bathrooms, dorms, Student Union, and student cafes. Your members can also post these flyers on their own dorm doors!
- At the end of each week, send out a few members to check your flyers. Replace any damage or removed flyers if needed.
Whether you have a group of 5 or a group of 35, you can easily get active advertising the Pregnant on Campus Initiative via social media. Here are some tips for improving your social media outreach:
