No one can deny that the conversation surrounding abortion is changing in our culture. From Congressional investigations of Planned Parenthood to advanced technology revealing new scientific evidence of life in the womb, Americans are beginning to rethink abortion and what defines personhood. And with so much of our communication taking place in the digital sphere, it's not surprising that the pro-life movement is advancing through videos, tweets, Facebook pages, blogs, and Instagram posts.
As technology advances and changes course, it's vital for pro-lifers to stay informed and up-to-speed on how to use the tools we've been given to fight for the dignity of the unborn.
At FRC, we want to help you be a digital activist on the cutting edge of the pro-life movement. On the morning of January 19, 2018, pro-life digital activists will gather at Family Research Council headquarters for the ProLifeCon Digital Action Summit. At our 13th annual event, we will be joined by friends old and new as we discuss the most successful online strategies of the past year and look ahead to the opportunities before us under a new administration. Activists, policy experts, and government officials will be on hand to discuss the issues impacting the pro-life movement, and share practical ways that you can make a difference with a profile and a phone.
We're lining up some exciting speakers, including Reps. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.) and Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), former Planned Parenthood director, Abby Johnson, and LiveAction President, Lila Rose. You can watch last year's event here, and find out more about how you can participate in the 2018 event at our website here.
