We are thrilled to announce that former Congressman Trey Gowdy will be our special guest and keynote speaker. Trey Gowdy served as Representative for the 4th Congressional District of South Carolina for 8 years. Prior to this, Gowdy was a federal and state prosecutor for 16 years. Known for his versatile and skilled legal expertise, Gowdy served on multiple House committees and actively participated in numerous congressional investigations. Gowdy was one of the LOUDEST PRO-LIFE VOICES in Congress, cosponsoring and voting for multiple pro-life bills and repeatedly calling for Planned Parenthood to be defunded.

The former Congressman will share his experience as a federal and state prosecutor, as well as his service in the U.S. Congress. He will reveal his biggest take-aways from his contact with Planned Parenthood officials and the abortion industry. Trey will also discuss the introduction and passage of extreme abortion legislation in states like Illinois, New York, and others. He will tell us where the pro-life movement is headed, legislatively and judicially, and remark on what we can do here in Illinois.

Please join us for a wonderful evening which will motivate us to continue to build a culture of life in Illinois.
