Every year pro-life Missourians from across the state gather at the state capitol for a pro-life action/lobby day. This year’s action day is next Tuesday, March 10 (see flyer). Besides getting the opportunity for some face-to-face time with their legislators (if they’re actually in their office), action day participants also have the opportunity to hear from one or more pro-life speakers at a mid-day rally. This year we are privileged to have pro-life superstar Jill Stanek. The schedule for the day is as follows:
Begins at 10:00 a.m.
Missouri State Capitol, 3rd Floor Rotunda
10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
Begins at 12:00 (Noon)
Location: Selinger Center,

By St. Peter’s Catholic Church
MARCH BACK TO THE CAPITOL:
At the Conclusion of the Rally
