Friends for Life equips high school and college students with the tools to engage the culture of death by intelligently discussing the pro-life position in a positive and winsome manner. Each summer, Friends for Life Boot Camp is held in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Day camps are also expanding across the region. Every January, Allen County Right to Life hosts a Friends for Life trip to Washington, D.C. for the March for Life.
Friends for Life D.C. Bus Trip 2014
The annual bus trip to Washington, D.C. for the 40th annual March for Life is Monday, January 20 (evening) – Thursday, January 23 (early morning). Attendees will spend two days in Washington immersed in the life issue. On Tuesday, students will spend the day touring museums and landmarks in Washington, D.C. Their day will conclude with a Capitol tour led by Congressman Marlin Stutzman (IN-3) and his wife, Christy. Overnight Tuesday into Wednesday will be spent in a local parish. On Wednesday, they will lobby Indiana’s Senators, urging them to support pro-life legislation. Then they will join hundreds of thousands of other pro-lifers on the National Mall as they march together for life before boarding the bus that will bring the attendees back to Fort Wayne. Three River Educational Trust Fund chaperones will accompany the students at all times. The chaperones are screened and trained prior to the trip.
