As you know, the March for Life and the pro-life movement are never reported by most of the media accurately. This year, the March for Life is sponsoring a “TweetFest” to encourage pro-lifers at the March or around the country to show their support for life on Twitter to amplify our message, using the hashtag, #WhyWeMarch.
Additionally, March for Life is partnering with EWTN Productions to bring you LIVE 360 video footage of the rally and March for Life that anyone will be able to watch online, on Facebook, or on the March for Life app. The March for Life app will be ready for download from iTunes and Google Play shortly before the March and will feature important resources for your trip to Washington, D.C. for the March for Life, but also educational resources, and advocacy tools to help you make a difference for life all year long.
March for Life also excited to share that you can stay in touch year-round with the March for Life through mobile alerts. You can sign up to receive messages from the March for Life about pro-life events, advocacy action items, education opportunities, and later this year, information about the 2015 March for Life.
There’s so much you can do to participate in this important event – whether you are physically present or supporting us from home! There are many opportunities for unity and collaboration in bringing attention to the March for Life so that we can one day see an end to abortion in America.
In 2013, the networks spent a mere 17 seconds on the half million participants at the 40th March for Life (in comparison, they spent 521 times more on the Manti Te’o football scandal). The life censorship only continued with the trial of Kermit Gosnell and beyond. Simply put, the old media fear giving pro-lifers the coverage a movement of this size and vitality deserves.
In response, Media Research Center will produce a film from a compilation of amateur March for Life footage. If you plan to attend the March as an individual, with a church group or other organization, please document your experience and allow us to share it with the world.
