Campaign Life Coalition

National Pro-life organization advocating for the legal protection of every human life from conception to natural death. We aim to educate public consciousness, elect pro-life leaders, and support pro-life laws and policies in Canada and abroad. We organize the Canadian National #Marchforlife and coordinate #LifeChain in Canada

Category: Pro-Life

Start Date: November 17, 2022

Every year, Campaign Life Coalition (CLC) sends a delegation of pro-life young people to the Washington D.C March for Life to support our American brothers and sisters in the fight to end abortion. Often times, this life-changing trip is a young person’s first interaction with CLC. CLC Youth Coordinators, Maeve, and Kim, both initiated their involvement with CLC through attending our Washington D.C March for Life delegation trip, later becoming interns and then full-timers! Our young people come back home reenergized, inspired, and ready to make abortion unthinkable in their schools, churches, and communities. Often, these same young people join CLCY and take leadership roles in organizing the various youth events at our own National March for Life in Ottawa. This year’s Washington March will be monumental as it is the first March in a post-roe world.

As costs of travel have increased significantly, we are reaching out to ask for YOUR help in funding this life-changing experience, by helping to sponsor a young person.  

So, here’s the plan for this year... on January 19th, 2023, around 25 CLCY delegates will be departing from Ontario on a bus to drive overnight, arriving in time the next morning to attend the March for Life and rally at the National Mall in Washington D.C!

On the following day, after the March for Life, youth will head over to the Omni Shoreham Hotel for the National Pro-Life Summit hosted by Students for Life of America. It will be a day of inspiring pro-life talks by top speakers in the Pro-life movement. These acclaimed speakers will discuss a variety of life issues, invoking young people to concern themselves with the defense of human life. These speakers will include Kristan Hawkins, Trent Horn, Seth Dillon, and Allie Beth Stuckey, to name a few. Not only will our youth delegates be immersed in these pro-life talks, but they will be responsible for aiding us in the planning of our own youth summit on May 12th 2023, by providing speaker suggestions and feedback on aspects we can incorporate to improve our summit. We will return to Canada that same night, by bus. 

Testimony from last year’s attendee, Gideon: 

“The trip was one of the greatest experiences of my life, and it was an amazing opportunity to stand up for something I so strongly believe in, the ending of abortion. It was so inspiring to see tens of thousands of young people defending life for every innocent human being” 

Testimony from a 2019 trip attendee, Jennifer: 

"I cannot express in words how much the March for Life in Washington, D.C has inspired me. As we stood in front of the Canadian Embassy, cheering on the hundreds of thousands of Americans that passed us by, I could not help but sense the hope that surged through the air, like a great and powerful wave. I spoke to one of the marchers, communicating my feelings of hope for our cause. He replied, “What we need for our movement is hope . . . hope, and tenacity.” How true is that? The battle continues, and we must muster our strength. Yet, all is in vain if we do not have hope. Hope is the driving force. As William Green said at the SFLA conference, “Hold on tight to faith. You are the generation that will save lives.” Kristin Hawkins, at the SFLA conference, also spoke of hope when she said, “I believe we can run this race and finish it.” Now, reflecting back on my experience in front of the Canadian Embassy, I feel more keenly than ever this tsunami of hope. I am reminded of the profound words, spoken by actress Robia Scott at the SFLA conference, “God is on the move.” From my heart, I wish to express deep gratitude to CLCY and their donors for giving us the opportunity to witness Life in Washington, D. C."  


Here’s our cost breakdown: 

Hotel (Renaissance D.C Downtown Hotel): $1,296.66 USD (est. $1,800 CDN) 

Pro-Life Summit Tickets: $1,463.76 USD (est. $2,000 CDN) 

Bus Expense: $3,975 plus accommodation for driver 

Total: ~ $8,000 CAD = $320 per young person 

Our fundraising goal is $8,000; it would be a blessing to cover most of our delegates' costs. Please consider sponsoring a young person or contributing to the subsidization of costs, so that they are granted the experience of a lifetime! 


For life,  

Maeve Roche and Kim Headley 

CLC Youth Coordinators
