This coming Saturday, numerous non-profits, churches, organizations, and individuals across Southern California will be coming together for OneLife LA around the anniversary of Roe vs. Wade. OneLife LA is set to be Southern California’s first large scale celebration of the dignity and unique purpose of each human life.

This will be a family-friendly, action-oriented event with so many fantastic speakers and organizations. Doors open at 9:30 a.m. with a welcome and procession from Olvera Street to the Cathedral of Our Lady of Angels to Grand Park where there will be an incredible line up of speakers, a free concert with Josh Garrels, food trucks, balloon artists, and booths from community groups with service projects to help get people involved.

Thousands are expected to attend, but we need more. More people need to wake up to the unique value of each human life and what better way to show the city than a pro-life celebration through downtown. A movement has started with walks in DC and San Francisco and now we have Los Angeles to add to the list.

Let’s make sure this year’s event is attended and sustains until the culture wakes up to embrace life.

Share.

  1. Hi, Kathy, glad you were able to come with us on the bus sponsored by Witness to Life (www.witnesstolife.org for those who’d like to check it out). It was a bit too warm that day, but the event otherwise made an impressive debut.

    I thought it was every bit as organized and well done as the Walk for Life West Coast event in San Francisco that we went to last year. While the turnout as only about a fourth or third of the 60,000 who attended last year’s event in S.F., it was still a sight to see. The best part of the march was crossing the overpass of a freeway that had bumper-to-bumper traffic at the time. That was followed by one terrific speech and testimony after another at the park in the heart of downtown L.A.
