40 DAYS FOR LIFE LEADER TO SPEAK AT PERSONHOOD CONFERENCE
Washington, D.C. (30 December 2008) – David Bereit, director of the nation-wide 40 Days for Life campaign that has reinvigorated the grassroots pro-life movement, will be speaking at American Life League's Personhood Conference Jan. 23, 2009.
Bereit's revolutionary campaign, combining prayer, fasting, constant vigil and community outreach touched 204 cities across 49 states.
He is part of an exceptional group of speakers taking part in the Ninth Annual Training and Activism Week in Washington, D.C.
"David Bereit is a hero in the pro-life movement," said Marie Hahnenberg, project director for the 2009 Training and Activism Week. "His dedication to ending abortion through regular, peaceful presence outside of Planned Parenthood facilities and other abortion clinics has sparked a passion in thousands of people for protecting and defending the preborn."
Reports from around the country say that at least 1,100 lives have been spared from abortion thanks to the 40 Days for Life campaign.
"He has inspired so many people to become activists in their home towns and we are very happy to have him share his knowledge and experience," Hahnenberg said.
The ALL Training and Activism Week and Personhood Conference on Jan. 23 will also feature ALL president Judie Brown, Ambassador Alan Keyes, Kristi Burton, architect of the Colorado Personhood movement, Lila Rose, president of Live Action Films and renowned pro-life blogger Jill Stanek. David will be speaking on how to use today's technology to spread the pro-life, personhood message.
The event celebrates the reinvigoration of the personhood movement that works toward cultural and legislative recognition of all human beings from the moment of creation until natural death.
American Life League was cofounded in 1979 by Judie Brown. It is the largest grassroots Catholic pro-life organization in the United States and is committed to the protection of all innocent human beings from the moment of creation to natural death.
