Prepare to lead in a post-Roe America in the areas of influence (campuses, media, politics, medicine, law) that will most shape our nation.
Changing Minds Track
Conversation leads to conversion. Find out how to make a winsome case for Life while dismantling the abortion lobby’s objections to reversing Roe. Our conversations are critical in making abortion unthinkable.
BIOETHICS & Battles Ahead Track
Roe v. Wade was founded on the lie that “we don’t know when life begins.” And the abortion lobby has been trying to maintain that lie ever since. We need people who understand and can defend life from a scientific perspective from fertilization until natural death, and are prepared to engage with the advancements in science and medicine that challenge the sanctity of LIFE.
Empowering Women Track
What are the important conversations we need to have about women’s empowerment in our culture? Plus, in-depth discussion about what resources for pregnant and parenting women we need to have in place now in order to be ready for a post-Roe America.
WINNING STRATEGIES Track
Elections matter, from your local school board to the U.S. Senate, as elected officials can create legislature to reduce abortions, empower mothers and fathers, and prepare for our state-by-state approach after Roe is reversed.

Gov. Scott Walker
45th Governor of Wisconsin
Scott Walker was the first Republican elected Milwaukee County Executive. In the overwhelmingly Democrat county, Scott was re-elected by increased margins in 2004 and 2008 because he kept his promises to reform county government and put taxpayers first. In 2011, after he was inaugurated as the Governor of Wisconsin, Scott helped eliminate the state’s $3.6 billion budget deficit without raising taxes or cutting health care for those in need. The first Governor to survive a recall election (2012), he received more votes and a higher percentage of the vote than in his 2010 election, proving that Wisconsinites want leaders who keep promises. Scott was re-elected in 2014.
MOVER. SHAKER. HISTORY MAKER.
Students for Life of America (SFLA) is the nation’s largest youth pro-life organization. We are the only national pro-life organization dedicated to training and equipping college, high school, middle, medical, and law school students. Our approach is uniquely effective, and the methods we have developed are a combination of time-tested techniques and cutting-edge technology.
Recognizing the need for a strong, coordinated legal defense against growing attacks on religious freedom, more than 30 prominent Christian leaders launched Alliance Defending Freedom in 1994. Over nearly a quarter century, this unique legal organization has brought together thousands of Christian attorneys and like-minded organizations that work tirelessly to advocate for the right of people to freely live out their faith in America and around the world.
The mission of The Heritage Foundation is to formulate and promote conservative public policies based on the principles of free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, and a strong national defense.
Live Action exists today to shift public opinion on the killing of preborn children and defend the rights of these most vulnerable among us. Through compelling educational media, human interest storytelling, and investigative reporting, we reveal the humanity of the preborn and expose the abortion industry exploiting women for profit. With the largest and most engaged online following in the pro-life movement, Live Action is leading the transformation to end this grave human rights abuse.
