The 4th Annual Stand Up 4Life
march will take place tomorrow, Friday, January 21 at 12 noon. This is a great event, full of cameraderie, and is a chance to stand with that ethnic group most ravaged by abortion, Black America.
The March, founded by the great pro-life hero Reverend Walter Hoye, begins at Oakland City Hall, One Frank Ogawa Place in Oakland. Walter, a long time friend of the Walk for Life West Coast, is a past recipient of the St. Gianna Molla award for pro-life heroism. He is well known nationwide for his principled stand for free speech, which cost him 30 days in prison. The ruling which sent him to jail has since been overturned.
“All of our events strongly adhere to and enforce the “Nonviolent” philosophy embraced by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. If you cannot remain nonviolent, please do not attend our events.
We walk because abortion in the Black community is a form of genocide, it is the Darfur of America. We walk because abortion in Black America is the civil rights issue of our day. We walk because abortion does violence, both physically and emotionally, to men and women, to their children, and to their families.
Walk with us and help us change the perceptions of a culture that thinks aborting children is an option.”
This year’s event features the dynamic pastor and radio personality Dion Evans, CEO of RMG Radio; activist, author, mentor, and business professional Kevin McGrary; and Denise and Brian Walker of Everlasting Light Ministries (who will also speak the next day at the Walk for Life West Coast) You can read their moving story here.
