Students for Life of America exists to 

Recruit, Train, & Mobilize the Pro-Life Generation to

abolish abortion.

Students for Life of America launched full-time in August 2006 with the hiring of Kristan Hawkins. 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.

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.

Field Team

What sets Students for Life apart from other organizations is our full-time Field Team who travel daily in their respective regions visiting campuses to start, train, and mobilize Students for Life groups. When Regional Coordinators step onto a campus, they go beyond simply helping to establish a pro-life group. They create a lasting legacy that is transforming our nation toward a culture of life.

Leadership Development

Students for Life is committed to developing and sending out strong leaders for the pro-life movement and other culture-impacting industries. We have developed a handful of fellowship opportunities designed to mentor and prepare our student leaders for full-time pro-life missions. Learn more about each program here.

Grassroot Mobilizations

When Roe v. Wade is reversed, Students for Life will be the only entity with a trained and experienced army of ground troops ready to engage. Our three key objectives for the grassroots army we have built are to end Planned Parenthood’s influence in schools, end student abortions, and develop lifetime leaders.
