March for Life 2020 Events

The world’s largest pro-life event, March for Life will take place in Washington, D.C. on Friday, January 24.

Pro-lifers from around the country will gather for a rally at noon on the grounds of the Washington Monument. After the rally, pro-lifers will march up Constitution Avenue to the court.

The march held on a Friday comes ahead of the January 22 anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1973 ruling in Roe v. Wade and its companion case, Doe v. Bolton, that invalidated state and federal restrictions on abortions, legalizing abortion virtually on demand. Since that time, there have been more than 57 million abortions that have destroyed the lives of innocent unborn children.

But what if you live in Southern California and are unable to attend? Not to worry. OneLife LA has you covered.

OneLife LA is a walk for life in downtown LA for all of Southern California. Six years ago, Archbishop José Gomez “envisioned an event that would embody a civilization of love.”

This year, OneLife LA will take place Saturday, January 18. The event takes place starting at 12:30 p.m. at La Placita/Olvera Street to the LA Historic Park ending with a festival that will include live music, food trucks, and inspiring speaker testimonies.

“OneLife LA brings people together to celebrate the beauty and sanctity of human life and to build friendships and partnerships to promote human dignity in our community,” said Archbishop Gomez.

With each year, OneLife LA has grown in attendance. Last year more than 15,000 Californians filled the streets to celebrate the beauty and dignity of every human life from conception to natural death.

“OneLife LA is different in that we create a family festival atmosphere,” said Adrian M. Alarcon, Director of Media Relations Archdiocese of Los Angeles. “We partner with a number of non-profit groups. Attendees can sign up for service projects in order to put our theme into action.”

History of March for Life

In October 1973 a group of 30 pro-life leaders gathered in the home of Nellie Gray in Washington, D.C. to discuss how to commemorate the one-year anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

The first March for Life took place in January 1974 in Washington, D.C. to lobby Congressional leadership to find a legislative solution to the Supreme Court’s decision. Nellie Gray decided to hold a March for Life every year until Roe v. Wade is overturned.
