The Word From

Past Launches

Launch was life-changing.

- Miriam

This was incredible!

- Audrey

I learned and retained a ton of info.

- Jackie

Launch tackled all of the big questions. Nothing was taboo. [I] have been reminded to engage in the pro-life conversation simply in day to day conversations instead of only 'doing' pro-life stuff.

- Savanna

Launch so informative and fun! I LOVED listening to Alan explain abortion and cloning because he was so informative. I also loved listening to Jessica because she had so much information on past abortion cases.

- Samantha

I liked the Portland trip and talking to people up there. I also enjoyed the euthanasia session because we mostly hear about abortion stuff.

- Mary

I had an amazing experience at Launch! I learned better arguments and reasons to defend my pro-life stance. I had an amazing time at this retreat.

- JoAnna

I loved Alan’s session because it was really interesting. I liked the Portland field trip best because it pushed me out of my comfort zone.

- Anna

The best part of the Launch training was learning to persuasively convince people that life is valuable.

- Bethany

Meet Your

Featured Speaker

Josh Brahm

President of Equal Rights Institute

Josh’s primary passion is helping pro-life people to be more persuasive when they communicate with pro-choice people. That means ditching faulty rhetoric and tactics and embracing arguments that hold up under philosophical scrutiny.

He has publicly debated leaders from Planned Parenthood, the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL), Georgians for Choice, and one of the leading abortion facilities in Atlanta.

Josh also wants to bring relational apologetics to the pro-life movement. “Some pro-choice people will not change their mind after one conversation on a college campus. Some of them will only change their mind after dozens of conversations with a person they trust in the context of friendship.”
