Speaker Series

The Defend Life lecture series normally occurs throughout the 'school year' (Sept-May) with a break for December.

Contact Jack Ames (410-337-3721) if you would like to have an inspiring pro-life speaker at your church, school or organization. We are currently looking for churches and schools to host speakers for our April and May speakers.  For more information see our Upcoming Events page.

In addition, Defend Life has a number of local speakers who are avaiable on short notice. To find out more visit our Local Speakers page.

Defend Life is in need of at least one volunteer to function as team leader for the speaker series and perhaps 3-4 volunteers to do 'leg work'. All that is needed is attention to detail, some computer literacy and a heart for pro-life work. Please contact us if interested.

Here is a list of speakers Defend Life has sponsored in the past. To order a single FREE copy of CD, send your name, mailing address, and phone number, if we need to call you, to cds@defendlife.org. For postal mail ordering information, see our Resources page for instructions.
