Students for Life Action, the 501(c)4 arm of Students for Life of America, is launching its nationwide effort to encourage voters to #VoteProLifeFirst, including a plan to make 1 million phone calls to voters across the country.
Students are encouraged to get involved by signing up for the Call Squad and/or Door Squad. Call Squad members use our i360 database system, a simple system that allows you to make phone calls from your phone or laptop, to call pro-lifers across the country to explain to them the importance of voting pro-life first and making sure they are going to vote pro-life first.
Students can earn a $10 gift card for every 500 calls they make, and more rewards will be added soon!
(St. John Students for Life students helped knock doors in the 2019 Virginia elections).
Door Squad members will be working with Students for Life Action and Susan B. Anthony List to canvass in key states for votes; students will be provided with a stipend up to $500, as well as travel, lodging and food. Students can sign up to receive more information on the Door Squad at the link here. Canvassing will of course follow all social distancing guidelines and will not be occurring until it is safe to do so.
Titus Folks, the National Campaigns Advisor for Students for Life Action stated, “The pro-life generation has a tremendous opportunity to make a real difference in the 2020 elections. No matter where you live, you can help us by making phone calls, knocking on doors, or both. The 2020 election is a real opportunity to keep our country pro-life and ensure we can continue to pass life-saving legislation.”
You can sign up for the #VoteProLifeFirst initiative here.

More details on door knocking:
Students for Life Action is partnering with the Susan B. Anthony (SBA) List to knock on doors for targeted Presidential and U.S. Senate states in Florida, Arizona, North Carolina, Iowa, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Wisconsin. Don’t live in one of these states? No problem. The SBA List will pay the transportation costs to get you and your group to a nearby state. In addition, the SBA List will cover your food and housing costs and pay you $100 a one Super Saturday or $500 (directly deposited into your bank account) for a 3-day, long weekend trip.
