For the past month, ever since we made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel the National March for Life on Parliament Hill due to the ongoing pandemic, our team has been working day and night trying to put together this first ever Virtual National March for Life. We hope you will tune in throughout the week to join us for this unprecedented March for Life experience.

We’ve lined up an incredible roster of pro-life, political, and religious leaders who will join us throughout the week, sharing their talents, their stories, their prayers, and their words of encouragement. We hope that they will inspire you to #BeNotAfraid, which is the theme for this year’s Virtual National March for Life.

#BeNotAfraid Canada and join us from May 10-15 for the first ever Virtual National March for Life. Please spread the word to family and friends as well!

For life,

The National March for Life Organizing Committee
