2024 KFL March & Rally for Life

Join us Wednesday, January 24th for one of the biggest pro-life events of the year!

The Kansas March & Rally for Life is held annually in Topeka to inspire our state legislators to stand boldly for life as they begin their legislative session.

New This Year! We’re revamping the day’s format to bring more pro-life voices inside the halls of the Kansas state Capitol building.

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!

All Day: Take 10 to Talk with your Legislators

Location: Stop by the KFL information table located on the ground floor hallway south of the Capitol Visitor Center to sign in and pick up materials to share with your elected officials and their staff members.

Afterwards, consider taking a Capitol tour provided by Visitor Center staff, watch House and Senate general sessions, committee meetings, and more!

School and home school groups are welcome and encouraged to participate.
