“SFLAction has built a reputation as a major grassroots mobilizer, effectively advocating for pro-life issues with voters in key districts nationwide,” said SFLAction Grassroots Political Coordinator, Titus Folks. “The Pro-Life Generation is more equipped than EVER to reverse Roe v. Wade and protect life in law in every state.”
WASHINGTON, D.C. (05-12-2021) – This weekend, Students for Life Action will deploy in the states of Alabama, Arkansas, and Pennsylvania in the lead-up to primaries in those states. Grassroots activists are aiming to achieve a goal of knocking on nearly 5,000 total doors in key districts to urge constituents to encourage candidates to pledge to protect lifein the primary election.
Earlier in May, SFLAction launched its Summer deployments season in Indiana, where young pro-life activists knocked on more than 2,000 doors and sent more than 44,000 text messages alerting Indiana constituents which candidates have pledged to protect the preborn and which ones were dodging the life issue. Twenty candidates who pledged to end abortion via the Students for Life Action survey won their primaries in that state, including five candidates who won competitive primaries after receiving a 100% Pro-Life score on SFLAction’s survey.
In Pennsylvania, SFLAction will expose incumbents who claim the “pro-life” label, but voted to continue funding barbaric and inhumane research on aborted children at the University of Pittsburgh.
In Arkansas, SFLAction will highlight pro-life stalwart Senator Jason Rapert, who is running for Lieutenant Governor, and his record of championing legislation that promotes Protection at Conception in the state.
In Alabama, SFLAction will expose incumbents who worked to stop strong pro-life legislation, including an SFLAction-inspired Chemical Abortion Ban. SFLAction will highlight candidates who have shown resolve to protect life and urge them to redouble their efforts if reelected.

Students for Life Action (SFLAction), a 501c4, along with its 501c3 sister organization, Students for Life of America (SFLA), make up the nation’s largest pro-life youth organization and a political and policy operation engaging people of all ages. Together they work to end abortion — the human rights issue of our day — and provide political, legal, and community support for women and their children, born and preborn. Headquartered in Fredericksburg, VA, SFLA has more than 1,250 groups on middle, high school, college, university, medical, and law school campuses in all 50 states. SFLA creates strategy, policy, and programming to connect those most targeted for abortion with people ready to help and builds a framework for political engagement on their behalf. SFLA and SFLAction have more conversations with those most targeted by the abortion industry than any other pro-life outreach in the world, reaching more than 2 million people across social media platforms each week and engaging in approximately 100,000 digital conversations per month. Over the last 16 years, President Kristan Hawkins has grown SFLAction/SFLA into an $18 million organization preparing for a Post-Roe America.
