Evangelism does not stop during a world wide pandemic, and that includes the pro-life evangelism being done by Students for Life of America (SFLA). This national organization works with pro-life activists on college campuses and had to go completely online when the novel coronavirus came to the United States. They have a list of recommendations and tools for pro-lifers to keep doing their pro-life work during quarantine.
One thing SFLA is currently providing is the “History Maker Toolkit” to student leaders in order to host their events online and to show different videos to their individual clubs online. The History Maker Toolkit has all of the 2020 National Pro-Life Summit in a digital format that all student leaders can refer back to in order to train themselves and their clubs during their time of quarantine.
The SFLA’s National President, Kristan Hawkins, now hosts a podcast called “Explicitly Pro-Life” in which she has numerous speakers on and discusses abortion from a variety of angles as well as other related topics like contraception.
Students for Life also created an online SFLA HQ which has training videos, social media posts, step by step event guides, and flyers available. They even have a way members can earn Amazon Dollars by logging online and in-person conversations they have with pro-choice people. The site also allows people to thank their elected officials for voting pro-life. The site can even be inspiration for college pro-life groups to update their materials (such as flyers).
The final thing that Students for Life of America says is a good practice for students to pursue is to promote a diaper drive for their area pregnancy resource center (PRC).
