    HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP DEFEND LIFE

    The Knights of Columbus vigorously defends the dignity of each human being at every stage of life.

    Knights contribute millions of dollars and countless volunteer hours in support of the most vulnerable each year. In 2019, the Supreme Council alone contributed a total of $4.8 million to pro-life initiatives around the world.

    Are you looking to contribute to this effort?

    The Knights of Columbus’ Faith in Action Life programs like Pregnancy Center Support, March for Life, the Ultrasound Initiative and Special Olympics provide the perfect opportunities to get involved. Here’s how you can be involved:

    Pregnancy Center Support and Ultrasound Initiative
    These programs help moms choose life — and help us change hearts and minds about abortion.

    How you can help:

    • Collect monetary donations through a baby bottle drive or other special fundraising events such as a golf tournament, a fundraising gala or a pastor-approved second collection at Mass. During the current COVID-19 pandemic, online fundraising campaigns are another great option.

    • Volunteer at a pro-life pregnancy center as a general helper, mentor or — if you have medical skills — an ultrasound technician, nurse or medical director.

    • Host a diaper drive, a baby shower or other event to collect baby wipes, baby and maternity clothing, blankets and other items. Contactless deliveries can often be arranged.

    • Spiritually adopt a mother and her unborn child by praying each day for 9 months.

    March for Life
    Created in response to the infamous Roe v. Wade decision, this is among the largest annual human rights demonstrations in the world.

    How you can help:

    • Sponsor a bus or donate funds in support of those traveling to the National March for Life in Washington, D.C.

    • Organize a Mass, novena, rosary or other prayer service to coincide with the date of the national march. Virtual prayer services can also be organized.

    • Help distribute signs and other pro-life items before the national march; you can also distribute them at pro-life marches in your local area.

    • Connect with local march organizers well in advance of the event to identify how you can best support their needs, especially in consideration of local COVID-19 ordinances.

    Special Olympics
    Special Olympics celebrates the worth and dignity of every human being. Knights of Columbus work with Special Olympics to fund, sponsor or volunteer for events in the local community.

    How you can help:

    • Participate alongside athletes with intellectual and physical disabilities as part of the Special Olympics Unified Sports

    Get involved as a volunteer, coach or officiate at a Special Olympics sporting event.

    • Support your local Special Olympics organization through raising funds.

    • Support the Law Enforcement Torch Run, which has changed millions of attitudes by engaging law enforcement officers worldwide to be champions of acceptance and inclusion.

    • Due to COVID-19, Special Olympics programming varies across the country. Be sure to contact your local Special Olympics representative for more information on how you can get involved.
