National Sidewalk Counseling Symposium

from Eric Scheidler, Executive Director
Pro-Life Action League

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.
