Speaker in the Spotlight Want to create or reinvigorate a pro-life presence at your church or organization? Whether it's a home school group of 25 or a church congregation of 250, Arizona Right to Life is ready to ignite a passion for defending life with our new Leadership Training Seminar. This dynamic four-hour seminar combines our new documentary Abortion: Inside the Choice with breakout activities that equip pro-lifers so they can effectively engage our culture. Through role-play and small group workshops you'll practice talking to pro-choice friends and strangers to prepare you for real conversations where you can change hearts and save lives. Each participant will also receive a Leadership Kit with exciting ideas and practical advice for implementing pro-life projects in your community. If you would like this seminar to be hosted at your church or club you can:

- Attend our Saturday, June 28th Leadership Meeting at 10:00am at the State Right to Life office. We will go through the whole seminar and give you the materials you need to host the seminar in your community at a time that best suits your needs. At this meeting we will be offering the DVD for a donation of $15 and seminar manuals for a $10 donation.

- Invite our team of pro-life advocates to bring their knowledge and experience to host the seminar for your church or organization. We simply ask that you invite at least 25 people to attend and give a suggested donation of $10 per person to cover the cost of materials. We also ask for a $100 stipend for AZRTL trainers.

If you want your family, church, or community to have the tools they need to stand up for life, contact Melanie Pritchard at 602-285-0272 or Melanie.pritchard@gmail.com for more information. If you would like to order these supplies apart from the training seminars contact Arizona Right to Life at 602-285-0063 or email us at azrtl@azrtl.org.

Uncle SamAs the summer begins don't forget that election 2008 is just around the corner. During the summer months one of the most important things pro-lifers can do is register to vote. Consider organizing a table and registering people after your Sunday church service. To do this:

1. Get voter registration cards by contacting your local County Clerk.

2. Pick a time and a location where lots of people go such as a community fair, a local college, church service or a grocery store. Ideally you should want to empower voters in "traditionally disenfranchised" communities that are usually under-represented by politicians or have low voter turnout.

3. Have good information and know the law. To find out who is eligible to vote go to:

You can also register online at: http://www.azsos.gov/election/VoterRegistration.htm


POLITICIANS: Let the voters know where you stand on life issues by filling out our pro-life questionnaire and mailing it to our state office by June 18th. The questionnaire is available online at:
