WHO WE ARE
The Human Defense Initiative was founded in May of 2018 by Devin Sena, a 19 year old life advocate living in St. Augustine, Florida and is the first millenial-led pro-life news publication and digital advocacy platform.
We launched our website on May 16, 2018 and publish national, international and commentary news regarding pro-life topics including abortion, adoption, euthanasia, and physician assisted suicide. We were founded to create a digital movement which allows like-minded people to connect and help spread the pro-life message and our website is a platform which allows them to do just that.
Since launch we have formed a dedicated team of over 150 passionate life advocates working relentlessly to deliver relevant news, inspiring commentary, and powerful digital outreach. Each of our contributors help spread the pro-life message through journalism, graphic design, editing, videos, or social media. We are also working to increase our fundraising and beginning to send our members to events to further our outreach. We have even had people tell us they converted from pro-abortion to pro-life thanks to our work!
WHAT WE DO
We are more than just a news organization while we are a pro-life news publication we also are working on expanding our outreach. Expecting mothers can call or text the following number if they need counseling or assistance: 628-777-3864.
We also just completed our first diaper drive fundraiser and plan to host another baby item fundraiser soon for a woman who is experiencing an unplanned pregnancy and reached out for support.
To learn more about what we do feel free to check out our one year recap video:
Since we are a completely digital based organization, members from all over the world are able to join our team and collaborate together remotely. As an online-based organization we are “always open,” allowing our members to join our group, help create content, and contribute at their own pace. We understand a lot of our members attend school, work, or have children so our platform allows them to contribute in their off time when homework is completed, they are off the clock or the kids are asleep! Plus by being a part of the Human Defense Initiative team you can contribute to the pro-life movement without even having to leave your house!
