About Us

On January 2016 we were on our way to Washington, D.C. For the march for life – our cars were packed, and our hotel rooms were booked. The night before we left, I received a message from a pro-lifer who was to speak in Washington, D.C. At the march. She told me not to come because a huge snow storm was taking over the D.C. Area and many who were there were already leaving.

Many buses from the New York area canceled, and so many pro-lifers were disappointed that they wouldn’t be able to attend the march.

I began to pray and the Lord answered me. He spoke to my heart and told me to have a March For Life New York. This was on January 24, 2016. I began to work day and night, and on April 30, 2016, we had our first March For Life New York!

Since then we have grown to over three thousand marchers, rallying at the New York State Capitol building. We begin the march at the children’s memorial, inside the empire state plaza, and march to the back porch of the Capitol building, where we have prayer and worship, and amazing pro-life speakers.

We give all the glory to God, and we are so thankful for all that Jesus has done to help us proclaim the message of life. Please join us as continue to fight for the unborn, and all those who need protection from the culture of death that has invaded our nation!
