Students for Life of America exists to
Recruit, Train, & Mobilize the Pro-Life Generation to
Kristan Hawkins launched Students for Life of America full-time in August 2006. Thanks to an angel investor, our organization was able to grow rapidly with the mission to build and become the voice of the Pro-Life Generation.
For the first several years of our organization, we were focused on growing the number and quality of Students for Life groups on college, high school, and graduate campuses. However, simply starting Students for Life groups is not our mission. Abolishing abortion is.
Students for Life has grown up to become one of the leading pro-life advocacy organizations in the world, driving the narrative for the entire movement and leading by example. Our staff size and budget is one of the largest in the entire pro-life movement. And our reach and success are recognized movement-wide.
We are humbled to report that a pro-life advocate cannot go to a pro-life march or any other event without witnessing our legacy of joyful, hopeful, young people proudly waving our signature black-and-white “I am the Pro-Life Generation” signs.
Impacting Campuses & Communities
change their minds
Headquartered in Fredericksburg, Virginia, the Students for Life team, consisting of nearly 80 full-time staff, has trained more than 163,000 young people to stand up for Life. We currently serve 1,400 pro-life student groups on middle, high school, college, university, medical, and law school campuses in all 50 states who contribute more than $21 million in in-kind volunteer service to the women and families each year.
SFLA creates strategy, policy, and programming to equip those most targeted for abortion to change minds of their peers, transform communities by connecting women and families in crisis with non-violent support, and advocate for public policy that protects both mother and child from the predatory abortion industry. Students for Life has 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.
