what is

Celebrate Life

On June 24th, we celebrate the one-year anniversary of the Dobbs decision that overturned Roe v. Wade. Abortion regulation has now returned to the states, meaning that we have more work ahead of us here in Oregon. But the end of Roe is just the beginning for the pro-life movement in Oregon. More than ever, we must call for justice for the unborn and support life in tangible ways.

That’s why we’re launching Celebrate Life: A Week of Action. Celebrate Life is a time to intentionally engage in local pro-life support and advocacy. Over the week of June 26th–July 1st, you can complete action items, fill out a “passport” and enter to win prizes—all while celebrating the end of Roe and making a difference in your Oregon community.

Grassroots Outreach

Are you frustrated that people don’t know about Oregon’s extreme abortion laws? This is an opportunity to help educate your community about the law and what they can do about it.

Suggested Action Items:

  • Take one hour to go door knocking in your neighborhood. 
    • If you’d like to be more strategic in your doorknocking adventure, email celebratelife@ortl.org to request an i360 account. Using this app will help you go doorknocking at households that are more likely to be persuadable. 

  • Distribute pregnancy resource and abortion pill reversal information in your community at local businesses and community events.

  • Talk to a pro-choice friend or family member.

Pregnancy Resource Center Support

Pregnancy resource centers empower women and families to choose life by providing physical and emotional support.

Suggested Action Items:

  • Donate to your local pregnancy resource center (PRC). Needed items often include diapers, wipes, formula, and new or gently used maternity and children’s clothing. Check your PRC’s website or contact them directly to find out what resources are most needed. 

  • Host a virtual baby shower to benefit a local PRC. 

  • Is your church connected with a PRC? If not, talk to church leadership to see how your church can partner with a local PRC. This article may be helpful. 

  • Volunteer at your local PRC. They need volunteers with all kinds of skills. Ask how you can help!

  • Fundraise. Can you hold a bake sale? Coordinate a baby bottle drive?

  • Write a note to encourage the staff at your local PRC.


Wednesday, June 28th

Family Support

Help provide food, housing, and respite care for women and families in need.

Suggested Action Items:

  • Support a local food bank by donating food or volunteering

  • Safe Families for Children involvement.

Foster and Adoptive Family Support

Not everyone can adopt or foster, but everyone can support foster and adoptive families. 

Suggested Action Items:

  • Every Child Oregon volunteer opportunities:
  • Do you know a foster or adoptive family? Support them by providing a meal, babysitting, or offering help in another way. 

  • Oregon CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates). Find a local program and see what needs they have that you might be able to fill. 


Friday, June 30th

Sidewalk Advocacy

Be a presence for life! Provide information and support to empower women to choose life. 

Suggested Action Items:

  • Take an hour to hold a silent prayer vigil outside your local abortion facility. Bring a friend or come alone. Your presence saves lives! The appointment no-show rate skyrockets when people are silently praying outside an abortion facility. 

  • Distribute flyers about the abortion pill and pregnancy resource centers outside a local abortion facility. 

  • Sign up to take a course about sidewalk advocacy. 

  • Advertise your local PRC on social media. 


Saturday, July 1st

Choose Your Own Adventure

Repeat one of the themes from earlier in the week by completing a day you weren’t able to do, or by coming up with your own action item. What is a need you see in your community? How can you fill that need?


Each day, you have two goals:

  1. Find a need or information gap in your community related to the theme.

  2. Find a way to fill that need.

The suggested action items are to help you brainstorm and come up with ideas. These are good starting points, but don’t limit yourself! You know your community.

Remember to fill out your Celebrate Life passport for a chance to win a prize!

When you submit your passport, you’ll be entered into a prize drawing.

  • Each day that you complete an action item, you get one entry into the drawing.
  • If you complete all six days, you’ll get two bonus entries (total of eight entires).
  • Each participant is only eligible to win one prize.
  • Six lucky winners will get to choose a free item from our new merch.
  • Passports must be received by July 10th to be eligible for the prize drawing.
