From Students for Life of America
:World's largest youth pro-life conference sells out 2 months before event
ARLINGTON, VA- Last Thursday, November 19, 2009, the Students for Life of America National Conference sold out with 2 months before the event. Over 800 students are currently registered for the the 1 day conference scheduled to take place on Saturday, January 23, 2010 at the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. While this is the 3rd consecutive year for the conference to sell out, this is the first time to do so before the month of January.
After selling out the conference, Kristan Hawkins, Executive Director of Students for Life of America, remarked, "This is an incredible day for the youth pro-life movement. For over 20 years, Students for Life has been hosting a national conference. Never before have we seen this number of registrations so early. It's amazing considering our advertising is mainly through word of mouth."
Hawkins further reflected, "I believe this marks a turning point for our organization and movement as the youth of America are becoming increasingly more motivated and active in standing up for Life. The youth of America are rejecting the actions being taken by the this pro-abortion Presidential Administration and Congress and are responding loud and clear."
A waiting list has been developed for additional registration requests and overfill rooms are being scheduled. To get on the waiting list, contact Students for Life of America at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 703-351-6280.
