On Thursday, Illinois Right to Life put on our first-ever Ground Zero Tour: Preparing Illinois for a Post-Roe America. It was a MASSIVE SUCCESS with around 75 people attending: a sell-out!
Our Executive Director Amy Gehrke explained the educational and tactical strategies Illinois Right to Life is employing to begin restoring protection to the most vulnerable in our state. Program Director Dr. Steve Jacobs discussed the history of Illinois abortion laws and the the ways in which current events are changing the abortion debate and giving pro-lifers in Illinois and across America reason for hope.
Communications Assistant Savannah Dudzik discussed why it is so important for us to get involved and how we can educate and inform ourselves and others on this crucial human rights issue.
This event would not have been possible without the hard work of our Director of Operations Denise Zabor and our Development Manager Sarah Brown.
A HUGE shoutout to Fabulous Freddies in Chicago for hosting us and for providing the absolutely delicious food!
