JFA Equips 263 at the March for Life

JFA training specialists Catherine Wurts and Rebecca Haschke participated in the March for Life JFA-style: they turned it into an opportunity to teach pro-life advocates to dialogue!  They began by marching along with 220 high school students and 43 chaperones from the Catholic Diocese of Lincoln, Nebraska.  Then in a two-hour workshop the next day, they equipped all 263 to change hearts and minds on abortion.

One of the students wrote Rebecca just this week (about one month later):

Today me and three of my friends were waiting in a lobby to do interviews for Girls State. There was also a girl from [another high school] that was waiting along with us and somehow we got on the topic of abortion and she was pro-choice.  It was the perfect first encounter and chance to use the skills you taught us.  She was very good about hearing our side, and we were good about hearing hers.  She [gave] the exact reason most [give]: ” Just a clump of cells.”  We were able to ask questions and stay on the same page with her without overwhelming her, thanks to you and your presentation!
