(LifeSiteNews) — Voting is now open to pro-lifers everywhere to select one of six amazing pro-life organizations and help expand their life-saving, redemptive, healing, and eye-opening work.

Karen Garnett, executive director of National Prayer Luncheon for Life (NPLL), encourages the pro-life public to prayerfully discern which pro-life organization to vote for, from now until midnight on March 22. The winning group will receive the 2022 Pro-Life Impact Award and $50,000 to help advance their mission.

The award nominees are:

Embrace Grace, which equips churches to provide support to pregnant women in need as well as young, single moms and dads.

Live Action, a group that aims to transform hearts and minds with educational and eye-opening pro-life media content.

Pro-Life Action League, which helps train pro-lifers to effectively defend and protect life, and coordinates pro-life events across the country.

ProLove Ministries, which offers love and practical help to pregnant women through a variety of projects, such as a pregnancy crisis hotline and transitional housing.

Support After Abortion, which helps women and men heal from the trauma and wounds of abortion.

The Radiance Foundation, which educates, inspires, and motivates people to cherish human life through creative and captivating ad campaigns, multimedia and more.

Garnett and NPLL chairman Brett Attebery, who is also president and CEO of Heroic Media, are interviewing representatives from each organization on their weekly podcast, the NPLL Pro-Life Impact Show, during which they profile the work of each group.

The speaker lineup for this year’s NPLL, which will be held Friday, March 25, the Feast of the Annunciation and the Day of the Unborn Child, includes Bishop Joseph Strickland of Tyler, Texas; Sister Dede Byrne, surgeon and family doctor, former U.S. Army Medical Corps colonel and speaker at the 2020 Republican National Convention; Rev. Walter Hoye, founder and president of Issues4Life Foundation; Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference; and Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life, which won the Pro-Life Impact Award last year.

The Pro-Life Impact Award, now the centerpiece of the NPLL’s annual event, was launched in 2021 as part of a rebirth of the NPLL, which since 2016 had functioned as a fundraising event for Heroic Media’s internet ad campaigns, explained Garnett, who also serves as vice president of culture for Heroic Media.

The fundraiser was inspired by a desire to outdo Planned Parenthood as they raised money for their “killing agenda,” going “head-to-head” with them by furthering Heroic Media’s life-saving work instead.

Garnett told how Attebery was given a “new vision” for the luncheon as the world turned virtual after the COVID-19 pandemic. Attebery was inspired to transform the fundraiser into a year-round initiative culminating with an annual “prayer-centric event” that would expand its largess beyond Heroic Media by elevating and celebrating high-impact pro-life organizations from across the U.S. The NPLL annual event became largely virtual, enabling greater nationwide participation.

This year, all those who wish to virtually attend for free, or attend in person at the Gaylord Texan (limited seating available), can register near the bottom of the NPLL home page.
