Missouri Lifeline 10/16/15
MRL Statewide Leadership and Annual Membership Meeting The Missouri Right to Life Statewide Leadership and Annual Membership meeting will be held November 14th in Pleus Hall at Immaculate Conception Parish, 1208 E. McCarty, in Jefferson City. The gathering starts at 9:30 with the meeting starting promptly at 10:00 am.
The highlight of the meeting will be a presentation by Zina Hackworth, founder of the organization, This Race Will Self-Destruct. Zina will educate us on the devastating impact of abortion on the African-American community and give us insights into how the black community feels about abortion and how to engage, educate and motivate them.
In addition, we will have extensive information about the Missouri legislative investigations into Planned Parenthood and what has resulted from the hearings. As always we will have updates on future legislation and activities going on in the federal arena as well. There will also be a separate presentation by the MRL PAC on the 2016 election.
Lunch will be provided for a goodwill offering. All are welcome to attend. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 573-635-5110.
