Stand Up 4Life! March Tomorrow, in Oakland

The 4th Annual Stand Up 4Life march will take place tomorrow, Friday, January 21 at 12 noon.

The March, founded by our friend, the great pro-life hero Reverend Walter Hoye, begins at Oakland City Hall, One Frank Ogawa Place in Oakland. This is a great event, full of cameraderie, and is a chance to stand with that ethnic group most ravaged by abortion, Black America.

From the Issues4Life webpage:

"All of our events strongly adhere to and enforce the "Nonviolent" philosophy embraced by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. If you cannot remain nonviolent, please do not attend our events.

We walk because abortion in the Black community is a form of genocide, it is the Darfur of America. We walk because abortion in Black America is the civil rights issue of our day. We walk because abortion does violence, both physically and emotionally, to men and women, to their children, and to their families.

Walk with us and help us change the perceptions of a culture that thinks aborting children is an option."

This year's event features the dynamic pastor and radio personality Dion Evans, CEO of RMG Radio; activist, author, mentor, and business professional Kevin McGrary; and Denise and Brian Walker of Everlasting Light Ministries. You can read their moving story here.
