On Jan. 23, 53 Christians from Western North Carolina traveled to Washington, D.C. to participate in the annual March for Life. The March for Life is the largest protest in our nation’s capital each year. It is held on or near Jan. 22, to coincide with the Supreme Court’s decision in the case of Roe v. Wade to peacefully seek to petition Congress for redress.

Marchers join with hundreds of thousands of pro-lifers each year from many religions, ethnicities and ages as they walk from the National Mall down Constitution Avenue to the steps of the Supreme Court.

A public meeting is scheduled for Friday, Feb. 18, at 7 p.m. in the new Jackson County Senior Center off Webster Road near SCC.
