January 2009 Activities for PLAGAL

On January 22, 2009 PLAGAL will once again be participating in the March for Life. We will be meeting at 1pm at the Navy Memorial fountains. The Navy Memorial is located at: 701 Pennsylvania Ave, NW. Washington, DC 20004. There is a metro stop there. Then, we will go as a group to the march. The rally for the March for life this year is located on 7th Street between Jefferson and Madison Drive. For those of you who cannot meet us at the Navy memorial, just look for the PLAGAL banner in the vicinity of the rally. We will try to find and meet up with other organizations such as FFL, DFL and Consistent Life if possible. If all else fails and you have still been unable to find PLAGAL you will find us at some point at the Constitution Avenue entrance to the Russell Senate Office Building where we will stop marching and hand out flyers calling for inclusiveness in the struggle to help women and their unborn children until the end of the March.

On January 23, 2009 PLAGAL members will meet up to visit our own legislatures to share our personal views on the issue of abortion and give them PLAGAL information. For those who are interested in visiting your representatives we will meet up at Union Station at 11am and go together as a group. Please bring info on your representative such as office they are located at and maybe a letter (not in an envelope) to express your views. It is unlikely that they will be in the office to receive you. It is helpful if you know where your representative stands on the issue of abortion and word your letter accordingly.

On January 24, 2009 PLAGAL will have an information booth at the Students for Life Conference. The conference is located at the Pryzbyla Center, Catholic University of America Washington, D.C. 620 Michigan Ave., N.E. Washington, D.C. 20064. The closest Metro stop is the Brookland-CUA station on the Red line Help is needed to give out information to the students who participate. PLAGAL will have a booth from 8 am until about 5 pm. If you can volunteer please contact us at before January 20, 2009

On Saturday January 24, 2009 at 7 pm at the Dignity Center the annual meeting of PLAGAL will be held. We will be electing our board of directors as well as discussing other business of PLAGAL.
