March 2, 2017 12:00 ET

  • "Voiceless" Screening at 10 am
  • Policy Lecture at 12 pm

Join the director and producer of the powerful pro-life film, Voiceless, for a panel discussion about the role of movies and media in motivating churches to take an active role in promoting a culture of life. Care Net and Human Coalition will join to discuss practical ways that churches can become equipped to provide compassion, hope, help, and discipleship to women and men considering abortion.

In the film, a young, reserved war veteran-turned-community outreach leader puts his life on the line to stand against an abortion facility that has taken up shop across the street from his Philadelphia church. The winner of multiple awards, Voiceless has been honored as Northeast Film Festival’s Best Feature and People’s Choice for Best Feature Film and Best Feature Film from the California Independent Film Festival. The Voiceless film will be screened at FRC for our in-person audience at 10:00 am, followed by the lecture at Noon. The file is set to be released on DVD on March 7.
