Interested pro-life activists and families are welcome to drive in their own vehicles in this pro-life caravan. We will drive (without stopping) an hour and a half to the National Memorial For the Unborn. Vehicles may join up with or leave the caravan at any time as they need to. Pre-packing your water, lunch and snacks for the drive is recommended, in order to minimize the need to stop along the way.
1:30pm: Ceremony at the National Memorial for the Unborn, a site that used to be a killing center. This memorial now stands as a symbol of hope and healing. Men and women from around the world memorialize their children who were lost to abortion, by commissioning special plaques that bear a message of love and hope for those children. These plaques cover the walls of the Memorial and are an invitation to countless others to seek the mercy and healing that come from the Lord. Our ceremony will be a nationwide call to repentance, healing, and testimony.

Please make every effort possible to attend this event where we will stand together for the very least of our brothers and sisters.
