"Stand Up! Speak Our! Save Lives!" Youth Conference huge success!
More than 100 students left B. C High yesterday afternoon ready to save the world.They were informed and inspired by Dr. Mildred Jefferson, Linda Thayer, Marilyn Bernie, Marianne Luthin, and Mike Barnett.
The day culminated in an awesome presentation by Lila Rose about her work at Live Action exposing Planned Parenthood lying to women and facilitating statutory rape.Lila is a college senior.It was very inspiring for the students to see someone hardly older than they who is accomplishing so much for life.
The day was possible because of the dedication of Priscilla Keough and Kate Ulibari.Priscilla said, "I talked to some of the kids at the end.They all said they enjoyed every minute of the day and had learned a ton of things they didn't know.So I think it really was a success"
Adults who work with youth groups attended a parallel session with Mike Barnett, organizing expert from Washington, D C.
