WASHINGTON, D.C., January 9, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – The annual March for Life draws hundreds of thousands of pro-life citizens to Washington, D.C. every year. And this year's event is drawing special interest because of all the Trump administration has done in the last year to advance pro-life policies and measures.

But the massive march on Friday, January 19, is just the climax of a whole series of amazing pro-life events in the D.C. area in the days surrounding it.

Here is the full list of events that you'll definitely want to check out. Please note some of the listed events require an RSVP. 

This year, a plenary indulgence is available to Catholics attending the March for Life if the usual conditions are met.

We are striving to make this comprehensive, so if we've missed something please send it along!
