Pro-Life Wisconsin Education Task Force Programs
March for Life Program
Every January Pro-Life Wisconsin brings local Wisconsinites from around the state to join in the March for Life Chicago and Washington DC. Locally, pro-lifers hold prayer vigils and gatherings to mark the annual anniversary of the Roe v. Wade ruling.
This program engages all ages and is heavily attended by youth, chaperones and long-time supporters
Never a Burden: Medical Decision Making & End of Life
Medical decision making and protecting one’s life and dignity aligned with pro-life values while in the midst of a medical emergency can be daunting.
Through NAB Program, PLW helps adults and elderly prepare for difficult medical decisions and end of life issues, through workshops and distribution of our Protective Power of Attorney for Healthcare (PPAHC) document. PPAHC empowers Wisconsinites with a pro-life legal document that gives legal, and moral peace of mind well in advance of crisis situations.
Brighter Future: Youth Education and Outreach Program
Educating the youth is a top priority to Pro-Life Wisconsin. Through the Brighter Future Program, we go where youth are in Wisconsin to share the pro-life message, including schools, churches, youth retreats and events as well as educational conferences.
Brighter Future Program emphasizes engaging youth from a facts-based approach and using multimedia to reiterate the truth of human life and dignity, personhood and debunking the myths encouraged by the abortion industry.
The age group ranges from elementary to high school.
Marry Me First: Chastity Education Program
The Marry Me First Program educates middle school through college age ladies and gentlemen on the meaning and importance of chastity. Educating on this topic lowers promiscuity and unintended pregnancy which often leads to the temptation for aborting the unborn child.
The title of the program is a statement in of itself and encourages youth to save sex for marriage.
The practice of chastity when single will set a strong foundation for natural family planning for married couples.
Nurturing Life Speakers’ Bureau Program
Nurturing Life Speakers Bureau Program offers a variety of speakers with extensive knowledge on a diverse range of pro-life topics.
One Person at a Time: General Educational Outreach Program
In collaboration with our statewide network of local grassroots supporters, we seek to educate the pro-life message person by person.
We do this through participation in public events such as parades, county fairs, churches, schools and other events including fundraisers at the parish level.
Act Local Affiliate Program
Nearly 30 affiliate groups across the entire state work with us to spread the pro-life message and educate in a variety of ways.
The Act Local Affiliate Program supports local, grassroots and no-exception pro-life organizations in Wisconsin. It remains one of the most critical ways to build a culture of Life and save preborn lives.
Through this program we maintain a close relationship with our affiliates through providing materials, training, support and resources. Well-equipped affiliates are most effective in educating their hometowns and communities with the pro-life message.
Save Lives: Sidewalk Counselor Training Program
The Save Lives Program recruits and trains sidewalk counselors who speak to mothers and fathers directly outside of abortion facilities.
The program also provides resources that counselors give to moms and dads outside abortion facilities. Effective sidewalk counselors make a life or death difference when they speak to young parents in the most loving and convincing way.
Sidewalk counselors know their words can help save the life of the preborn baby by encouraging the parents to choose life for their child and directing them to free help at pregnancy resource centers.
Speak to the Culture: Prayer Vigils and Rallies Program
As a Christian and activist organization our Speak to the Culture Program host peaceful prayer vigils and demonstrations approximately once per month and promotes local prayer campaigns through our communications.
True to Life Media Campaign Program
This program spreads the pro-life message through online media, print ads, billboards, radio and other media outlets.
Often young mothers considering abortion turn to their phone or other electronic device to help them make a decision. We are there with life affirming content that helps point to the dignity and personhood of every human life at any stage.
Engaging Wisconsin: Formal Events and Fundraisers Program
Throughout the year, Engaging Wisconsin Program is responsible for the formal events and fundraisers.
In the Spring, two dinners “An Evening With…” and Living Courage Awards Dinner celebrate life, honor a legislator of the year and an activist of the year and serves as a forum to learn from a respected pro-life keynote speaker.
Approximately a combined 250-300 people attend these events.
Each fall we host approximately 500 people at our annual Love for Life Gala which features a nationally renowned pro-life speaker to educate our supporters and encourage generosity for the vulnerable.
Occasionally, there will be a tour of Wisconsin with national pro-life figure.
Campus Alive College Program
The Campus Alive College Program provides mentoring, funding, resources and encouragement to help pro-life college campus groups in Wisconsin deepen a Love for Life.
Often the pro-life club is the first point of contact for a woman unsure of keeping or ending her pregnancy.
Sadly, women studying at Wisconsin colleges and universities remain the largest social group at risk of getting a surgical or chemical abortion.
College-aged men can experience devastating effects of abortion when they realize their son or daughter was killed without their knowledge.
Providing abortion alternatives and post-abortive healing educational resources for pro-life college clubs can help women and men in crisis situations.
Helping Both: Pregnancy Support Program
This program assists Moms & Dads and their preborn babies through crisis pregnancy support resources, baby bottle campaigns, #GivingTuesday, Onesies and pregnancy resource center assistance.
Helping Both also provides burial vessels and ultrasound support to Moms & Dads in need.
