March for Life trip, newsletter, genocide awareness project

Hi Pro-Lifers,
It was great to see many of you at the rally and fall meeting this past weekend. Nice work MSU SFL on a great event! The following are some important updates. We are organizing a trip to D.C. for the March for Life, we are starting a newsletter, and your group has the opportunity to bring the Genocide Awareness Project to Campus. The details are below, read on. As always, please contact me with questions or concerns or if you know someone who is interested in getting a pro-life group started on their campus.
Students for Life of Michigan is organizing a bus trip to D.C. for the annual March for Life this coming January. We will leave Michigan on Friday, January 19th in the evening. We will arrive in D.C. on Saturday morning. On Saturday, we will attend the Students for Life of America Conference. Sunday will be our opportunity for sight-seeing and Monday will be the March. We will leave D.C. on Monday evening and arrive back in Michigan on Tuesday morning. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ATTENDING: you will need to turn in a $50.00 non-refundable deposit to Students for Life of Michigan no later than October 16th. The mailing address for SFLM is:
Students for Life of Michigan
P.O. Box 6933
East Lansing, Mi 48826
The total cost will be $200.00 per student, this fee will cover the bus and hotel. Checks may be made payable to Students for Life of Michigan. Food, conference fee and any miscellaneous expenses are the responsibility of the student. Groups may want to fundraise to lower this cost and SFLM will also work on fundraising to lower the cost, $200.00 is the maximum, hopefully it will be less.
SFLM is starting an e-newsletter! We want to spread the word about what pro-life students are doing in Michigan. Please send stories of your events or notices of events you are planning to Jenny Danne at don't forget to include pictures! The first newsletter will be sent out on October 1st. Please have the stories to Jenny by September 25th.
The Genocide Awareness Project is coming to Michigan, if you want it at your campus, let me know! GAP is a display that consists of large poster-size images of aborted babies. These images are extremely graphic and many will find them offensive (rightfully so). However, the display is also very effective, it puts the truth about abortion on display and forces pro-aborts to confront the gruesome procedure they promote. Minds and hearts will be changed, you may even save a life.
