“The human rights issue of our day – abortion – is on the ballot across the country as two radically different visions for America are in conflict. Students for Life of America is heading into 2024 more determined than ever to train unapologetically pro-life leaders,” said SFLA’s Kristan Hawkins. “We are demanding governments at the local, state, and federal level protect every child from the violence of abortion. We are demanding equal rights for all.”

WASHINGTON D.C. (09-18-2023) — The nation’s largest pro-life training event returns in January 2024 as Students for Life of America (SFLA) again hosts our annual National Pro-Life Summit. This year’s theme will be Equal Rights for All, an acknowledgement of the legal rights of preborn as well as the human rights atrocity of abortion. Event co-hosts include Alliance Defending Freedom, And Then There Were None, and Pro Love Ministries. The conference kicks off on Saturday, January 20, 2024, at 8 a.m. ET at the Grand Hyatt Washington, located at 1000 H St. NW, Washington DC.
“Since the fall of Roe, many pro-life activists have worked tirelessly to take advantage of new strategies to protect life and restore human dignity across our nation. From the State Houses to the Halls of Congress, the work is not done,” said SFLA/SFLAction President Kristan Hawkins. “It falls upon us to build up the Pro-Life Generation, promote non-violent support networks, and change minds about abortion. We will not stop until every abortion provider in America is shut down and every pre-born life welcomed into the human family. We demand equal rights for all human life!”

The 2024 National Pro-Life Summit will also feature a straw poll on the upcoming 2024 presidential elections, following the Iowa caucus and just weeks before the first Republican primaries, showcasing which way the #VoteProLifeFirst vote will go in what is expected to be a hotly contested race. Results of the straw poll will be available after the conference for media use.
Lastly, Students for Life of America’s will conduct onsite training with SFLA staff and other pro-life experts and activists, preparing Millennials and Gen Z for a busy 2024 election season across America.
Hawkins and Students for Life Action’s Vice President of Media & Policy, Kristi Hamrick, talked about the challenges for the pro-life, human rights movement in a Post-Roe America in an op-ed at the Washington Times.
They wrote: “Our nation has made the mistake before of disenfranchising people because they were not perceived as enough on their own by those in power. And those same prejudices impact the human rights issue of abortion today.
“At Students for Life, we reject prejudice against people based on race, sex, age, financial resources, perception of abilities, or a parent’s crimes. It will take time and great effort to help people see the least among us as valuable, especially after decades of indoctrination into an abortion point of view.
“This is the job of the pro-life movement. To make a case for the humanity of the preborn and to protect life in law and in service as much as possible, as quickly as possible, wherever possible.”
