Pro-life Kansans to rally at Capitol Jan. 24

Kansans for Life will hold the annual Rally and March for Life in Topeka on Wednesday, January 24. The day will be full of events including an interdenominational worship service and a rally on the south steps of the State Capitol Building.

The rally and march are reminders that even with the overturning of Roe V. Wade, much work is now needed state-by-state. KFL says they hope the event will “inspire our state legislators to stand boldly for life as they begin their legislative session.”

Schedule of events:

9:00 – 11:30AM: Topeka Performing Arts Center (TPAC) — Catholic Ignite event with pro-life speakers followed by Catholic Mass

10:30 – 11:45AM: Memorial Hall — Non-denominational prayer and worship service in Memorial Hall Auditorium

11:30AM – 2:30PM: Hungry? Stop by the Mater Dei-Assumption church anytime from 11:30AM to 2:30PM for a free-will-offering lunch located in Rossiter Hall, lower level.

12PM: Pro-lifers will march from TPAC and Memorial Hall to the steps of the State Capitol. Bring your smiles and energy!

12:15 – 1:15PM: Rally for Life on south steps of state Capitol. Featured speaker Tatiana Bergum and her family live in Northern Minnesota. She holds her bachelor’s degree in social work from the University of Wisconsin – Superior, and Master of Art’s in Leadership & Management from Concordia University – St. Paul.

Most recently, Tatiana worked as a federal contractor with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office on Trafficking in Persons (OTIP). She provided national training and technical assistance as part of OTIP’s National Human Trafficking Training and Technical Assistance Center. This includes working with state systems, organizations, and communities across the country who are working to counter human trafficking. Tatiana worked in Washington, D.C. for 5 years working in communications for a national pro-life organization until she returned to Minnesota and shifted into the mental health field. She worked as a mental health practitioner and program coordinator where she supported youth who experienced human trafficking & exploitation across Minnesota. She has extensive experience in community planning and collaboration, non-profit strategy, and state legislative and policy work around the issue of commercial sexual exploitation of youth and children. If you haven’t yet met with your legislators, taken a tour, or watched the legislature in action, you can do so after the rally.

After the April 2019 Kansas Supreme Court decision found a “right to abortion” in the Kansas Constitution, the Topeka Rally for Life may be more important than ever.

“Take the next step with us in your commitment as an advocate for pro-life values. There’s nothing to fear. We’ll equip you with everything you need to carry key pro-life messages to your elected representatives and senators. Together we’ll show our movement continues to be a powerful voice for the voiceless!” the organization says on its website.

Parking can be found under the capitol (2 hours maximum), on the streets surrounding the Capitol, and at various parking garages (8th Ave, between Kansas & Jackson; 9th & Kansas Avenue; Quincy between 6th & 7th; and Quincy between 9th & 10th). Find locations on the map above.
