2023 March for Life

Attend the world's largest pro-life event!

The right to life is a human right. Our defense of that right is a joyful witness to the beauty and dignity of every human person.

The March for Life is an inspiring, peaceful, vibrant, and joy-filled rally of women, men, young people, and children from all across the country. Every year, hundreds of thousands of pro-lifers converge on the National Mall and march on Capitol Hill on the anniversary of the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling, which legalized abortion in all 50 states. It’s the largest annual human rights demonstration in the world. But this is not just a protest… TOGETHER, WE GATHER TO CELEBRATE LIFE. We celebrate each and every life, from the moment of conception. We envision a world where every life is celebrated, valued, and protected.

Since 1994, DCRTL has led pilgrimages to this event. Saving lives by ending abortion and promoting a culture of life is why we march each year.

“I was so amazed and in awe of how many people feel so strongly about protecting life. I’m proud of how my daughter embraces the pro-life movement and I hope she carries that passion with her always. I enjoyed spending this time with my daughter and having many meaningful conversations about all we experienced and witnessed in D.C. I will encourage other youth to make this pilgrimage and deepen their respect for ALL life! Thanks DCRTL for making this experience possible!” -Anonymous Parent

“During this trip I saw more people in one place than I have in my whole life. It was an absolutely amazing experience to fight for the lives of the innocent and voiceless. The most amazing thing was seeing all of us (strangers) becoming one. We united and became one loud voice for all of the 61,000,000+ voices, and lives lost due to the terrible act of abortion. I will always remember and be so proud that I got to participate in the act of FIGHTING for life.” –Abbey Gasper
