from Eric Scheidler, Executive Director
It's hard to think of any pro-life work more important than sidewalk counseling -- standing outside the abortion facility and offering help to abortion-bound mothers.
Yet sidewalk counseling comes with many challenges: loneliness, uncooperative police, nasty clinics escorts, and even bad weather, to name a few.
That's why an event like the National Sidewalk Counseling Symposium is so important -- and why I jumped at the chance to co-host this year's symposium in Chicago July 24-25.
This event is a great opportunity to learn about sidewalk counseling, fellowship with other counselors, and learn how to sharpen your skills from experts with decades of experience.
At the symposium, you'll hear from:
- David Bereit of 40 Days for Life
- Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests for Life
- Edmund Miller of Guadalupe Partners
- my parents Ann and Joe Scheidler, and more.
I'll even be giving a talk on creative ways sidewalk counselors can do more with their presence at the abortion facility.
The cost of the symposium is just $50, a huge value for a two-day event like this.
Whether you're a seasoned sidewalk counseling veteran, or just getting started with this important pro-life witness, you won't want to miss this inspiring event.
