March for Life Chicago 2020 expands, set for Daley Plaza on January 11

March for Life Chicago Board President Dawn Fitzpatrick announced that the March for Life Chicago 2020, set for January 11, will be a massive expansion of previous marches. This time, the traditional rally and march is coupled with a convention featuring pro-life organizations from across the United States, a young adult evening event, and a fundraising banquet.

“Furious that Illinois legislators have made this state an abortion oasis for the Midwest, pro-life advocates from across the country are empowered to come together in a joyful gathering knowing we can build a brighter future. More people than ever plan to turn out for the March for Life Chicago,” said Fitzpatrick, who serves full-time as the senior coordinator for Respect Life Ministries at the Archdiocese of Chicago. “This expansion gives participants the opportunity to connect with companies, organizations, and other individuals from across the country who share their values. Now, they will depart ready to take further action in their own communities.”

Due to a major uptick in attendance, March for Life Chicago 2020 has moved the opening rally to downtown Chicago’s spacious Daley Plaza.

The March for Life 2020 keynote speaker will be abortion survivor Claire Culwell. Culwell was born two months premature after miraculously surviving the abortion that took the life of her twin sister. She was adopted, and in 2009, reconnected with her birth mother.

Other March for Life 2020 speakers include Archdiocese of Chicago Cardinal Blase Cupich, Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod President Dr. Rev. Matthew Harrison, Loyola University Medical Center’s Dr. Karen Deighan, Pro-Life Action League Executive Director Eric Scheidler, and weDignify Student Leader Alex Lehan.
