This June, five incredible students were chosen to represent the Pro-Life Generation as SFLA Student Spokespersons! These students are next-level leaders who will spend the year learning to communicate the pro-life message on a national platform by working one-on-one with pro-life experts in their field of interest. Each brings a unique story and set of skills to the position, and we can’t wait to see what they accomplish.
What is a Student Spokesperson?
The Student Spokesperson Program is a Students for Life of America Initiative that trains advanced pro-life student leaders in communications and media relations efforts. A Student Spokesperson is a college student leader who has completed or is enrolled in an SFLA leadership program in addition to playing a key role in leading activism on campus and in the community.
Who are the 2020-2021 Student Spokespersons?
2019-2020 Wilberforce Fellow
2019-2020 & 2020-2021 State Captain
University of Northwestern
Ever since I was little, I have been passionate about protecting the sanctity of human life. I knew from a very young age that life was precious and that it is a gift to be protected. As I grew older, my passion for the pro-life movement grew. Ever since a few years ago, I knew that I wanted to dedicate my life and career to the pro-life movement.
I plan to become a pro-life lobbyist after I graduate with my Interdisciplinary Studies major with a focus on Political Communications and Family Advocacy.
2019-2020 Effective Education Pillar Leader
2020-2021 State Captain
I got involved in the pro-life movement because there are so many innocent babies who are killed every day. I believe that people need to speak up for them and the pro-life movement does that. I have been a part of the 2019 California mission trip, as well as a two-day leadership bootcamp with Leadership Institute in the Fall of 2019.
I also participated in the 2020 March for Life in Washington D.C., paired with the 2020 National Pro-Life Summit. My plans for the future are to graduate college with my bachelor’s in Applied Business Management, and to continue writing and releasing original music. I am a creative person and I love to come up with new ideas and ways to do things.
2018-2019 Wilberforce Fellow
2019-2020 State Captain
University of Texas at San Antonio
I am a senior at the University of Texas at San Antonio majoring in Communication and double minoring in Spanish and Civic Engagement. In early high school, I was merely “personally pro-life.” When college came around, I learned more about the truth of my faith and with that, the truth about abortion. Upon learning there was a pro-life group at my university, I joined, was completely committed, and soon became the group president for a year and a half.
Since becoming a Student Leader for SFLA in 2018, I’ve also become a William Wilberforce Fellow, participated in the Texas Pro-Life Summer Leadership Academy, helped with the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court by participating in the Justice For Life Tour, volunteered on a pro-life mission trip to Australia, and lobbied and testified a part of my time as the Texas Co-State Squad Captain for Students For Life Action.
I currently intern for the San Antonio Coalition For Life and work as a sidewalk advocate. I am on hiatus in order to work as Campaign Intern for Students For Life Action’s summer deployments. My future plans are to work full-time for SFLA, earn my master’s degree in Bioethics, and to begin a Catholic pro-life ministry of my own.
2020-2021 Christian Leadership Fellow
I am the President of the Students for Life group at Liberty University and am graduating soon with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology & Adolescent Development. I am involved with a variety of scholarly and societal causes, from conducting and publishing psychological research to serving as a personal advocate for domestic violence and assault victims, but nothing excites me more than working in the pro-life movement!
2019-2020 Christian Leadership Fellow
University of Dallas
My name is Erin Quinn and I am a Kansas City, Missouri native who attends the University of Dallas. I have been involved in the pro-life movement since I was a young girl when I went with my mother while she volunteered for a pregnancy resource center. I served as the president of my pro-life group in high school, but I did not become an active pro-life leader until college.
I graduated from the Christian Leadership Fellowship for Students for Life of America, and am currently a Fellow for the Dr. Joseph Graham Fellowship in Texas. These two fellowships have introduced me to incredibly passionate pro-life activists with whom I seem to have found my niche.
