“Our innovative training and activation model take the pro-life message and movement to where people work, live and go to school,” said Hawkins. “And in the days ahead, Student for Life will announce some innovative programming to continue to train the Pro-Life Generation as they are home from school as we are moving from campus to computers. So stay tuned!”
Students for Life has been training and mobilizing the Pro-Life Generation since 2006 to abolish abortion. Growing from a few hundred groups to more than 1,250 groups across the country, including high school, college, med, and law groups, training that many students came not through not one huge event, but through diligent, daily engagement.

Tina Whittington, the Executive Vice-President of Students for Life of America observed, “100,000 students later, Students for Life continues to grow and thrive to engage and mobilize students in every state across the nation. Every student who signed up for a campus training, attended a leadership workshop, or who brought their group to one of our National Conferences has helped make a difference.”
