MARCH FOR LIFE
Join us for An "Ohio" March for Life on Wednesday, October 5th
Note: Although GCRTL has historically hosted a March for Life (now known as the Roe Remembrance) at the Ohio Statehouse on or around the anniversary of Roe v Wade, this is a different event. We are still planning our annual commemoration of Roe, with details to be announced soon.
The October 5th event will be a statewide event drawing together friends and supporters from numerous organizations: the DC March for Life, Greater Columbus Right to Life, Citizens for Community Values, Ohio Right to Life, Susan B. Anthony List, many regional "Right to Life" organizations and affiliates, pregnancy centers, and more.
Poster & Tee Shirt Design Contest Deadline: September 16th.
40 Days for Life Campaign: September 28 - November 6th
The Ohio General Assembly is not in Session on the 5th of October, however your House or Senate Member may be in Columbus, or his or her Legislative Aide may be meeting with constituents. If you would like to make an appointment to say hi, you can look up your member here.
Pro-Tip: You don't have to come to the Statehouse to encounter your elected officials - check in with their offices about local coffees, townhalls, or other events. But if you would like to stop by and visit while you are in town, advance scheduling makes this more likely. Be prepared that lawmakers may be in the District that day.
Statehouse Tours: Information for Statehouse Tours. Today will be busy, so advance registration highly suggested.

Poster and Tee Shirt Contest
We hope to distribute thousands of rally signs and tee shirts to be used at both the Ohio and DC March for Life, but we need your help to design them.
Between now and September 16th, try your hand at designing a rally sign or tee shirt and get the opportunity to win cash prizes and see your design used to help promote the dignity of each human life. We'll have categories for youth, teens, and adults; enter on your own, or invite your whole class or school to participate!
