Deal Hudson to be Keynote Speaker at the Personhood Conference in DC, Jan. 21
Thursday, January 21 at 3:00 p.m., Catholic Advocate’s Director, Deal Hudson, will be the keynote speaker at the Personhood Conference in DC sponsored by the American Life League. The topic of his address will be: “Personhood and Politics: From the Trinity to the Courtoom.” He will speak on “personhood” in the Catholic tradition, followed by a discussion of lay Catholic political participation, and ending with an evaluation of the Personhood Initiative.
American Life League will present its 10th annual Training and Activism Week, January 20-23 in Washington, D.C. This year we are bringing together an amazing group of pro-life activists and speakers who will entertain, inspire and equip you with the tools you need to ensure that all human beings are respected and protected by law from the beginning of their biological development.
Presentations from ALL staff include ALL executive director Shaun Kenney; Jim Sedlak, founder of STOP Planned Parenthood; Rita Diller, national director of STOPP; Johanna Dasteel, ALL’s senior congressional liaison and personhood project director; Michael Hichborn, the ALL researcher who helped expose CCHD-funded groups acting in defiance of Church teaching and Michael Barnett, director of LiveCampus.
Additional distinguished guest speakers include Deal Hudson, Jill Stanek, Rev. Johnny Hunter, Dr. Dianne Irving and more. The Pro-Life Blog Awards will be one of the highlights of the week, as ALL recognizes those who are at the forefront of using the internet to bring attention to the plight of the preborn.
