SFLA to Attend the 2022 Virginia March for Life on the Eve of What May Be the End of Roe

MEDIA ADVISORY: Students for Life of America team members and the Pro-Life Generation will be participating in the 2022 Virginia March for Life from 11 a.m. ET to 1 p.m. ET on Wednesday, April 27th, to support the preborn and protest the abortion industry. 

Roe v. Wade turned 49, but we won’t see it turn 50 as it is,” said Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins. “Students for Life of America was founded as a Post-Roe organization, ready to protect life in law and in service in all 50 states. We’ve got a post-Roe plan, and we’re training the next generation of pro-life leaders to ensure that the children who will be born will have all our support.” 

2022 Virginia March for Life

RICHMOND, V.A., and WASHINGTON, D.C. (04-26-2022) – WEDNESDAY, Students for Life of America (SFLA) will be participating in the Virginia March for Life, meeting at 9:30 a.m. ET at the Family Foundation to make signs at 707 East Franklin St., Richmond VA 23219, before heading to the State Capitol in downtown Richmond to rally and march at 11 a.m. ET at 109 North 9th St., Richmond VA 23219. SFLA’s Mideast Regional Manager Stephanie Stone will be leading SFLA’s participation in the March.   

SFLA and Students for Life Action (SFLAction) have been on the ground working in Virginia to support the growing state-wide pro-life efforts. Last year, SFLAction engaged in 34 targeted districts in VA out of 100 statewide races, resulting in the campaign losses of 36 pro-abortion candidates and the election of more than twenty candidates who pledged to vote 100% pro-life. SFLAction’s work included knocking on doors, making phone calls and sending text messages, and placing a five-figure TV ad to expose failed pro-abortion gubernatorial candidate, Terry McAuliffe.

MEDIA NOTE: Students for Life of America staff and students will be available for interview/B-Roll during their meet-up to make signs at the Family Foundation and during the March in downtown Richmond.   

As SFLAction has previously noted: “Limiting abortion policy choices to the few desired by those in power is not popular with Millennials and Gen Z, now about one-third of the electorate. Recent polling by Students for Life of America’s Demetree Institute for Pro-Life Advancement indicates that ‘an astonishing 8 in 10 want to vote on abortion policy in their states – UP from 66% last year.’ In addition, ‘(w)hen considering how devalued people have been treated historically by those in power, 65% of Millennials and Gen Z did not support allowing people in power to decide who is fully human and deserving of legal rights.’”

Students for Life Action (SFLAction), a 501c4, along with its 501c3 sister organization, Students for Life of America (SFLA), make up the nation’s largest pro-life youth organization and a political and policy operation engaging people of all ages. Together they work to end abortion — the human rights issue of our day — and provide political, legal, and community support for women and their children, born and preborn. Headquartered in Fredericksburg, VA, SFLA has more than 1,250 groups on middle, high school, college, university, medical, and law school campuses in all 50 states. SFLA creates strategy, policy, and programming to connect those most targeted for abortion with people ready to help and builds a framework for political engagement on their behalf. SFLA and SFLAction have more conversations with those most targeted by the abortion industry than any other pro-life outreach in the world, reaching more than 2 million people across social media platforms each week and engaging in approximately 100,000 digital conversations per month. Over more than 15 years, President Kristan Hawkins has grown SFLAction/SFLA into an $18 million organization preparing for a Post-Roe America.
