and Family!

Saturday, June 24th, 2023
11AM - 1PM
State of Illinois Office Building: 200 S. Wyman Street, Rockford, 61101


We will begin with a rally and then walk several blocks past City Hall, and back to the State of IL building to conclude in prayer. The event will end at 1PM.

The Supreme Court's Roe vs. Wade decision of 1973, which claimed the lives of over 62 million unborn Americans, has been overturned! Join us as we celebrate the anniversary of the Dobbs decision!  Now is the time to concentrate our pro-life efforts in making abortion not just illegal, but unthinkable in our state and city.

The Rockford Walk for Life brought almost 1,000 pro-lifers together in 2021 and 2022. Let's make 2023 even bigger!


Confirmed Speakers 
Emily Giasson, Executive Director – Lifeline Coalition Freeport
Sarah Michalak, Programs Manager – Students for Life of America
Joe Lazar, Faith Network Leader – Vision 2020
Pastor Pamela Harding, Associate Pastor – Faith Center

New Route 
Now that Roe vs. Wade has been overturned at the federal level, we will concentrate our efforts on our state and city. This year we will begin at the State of Illinois building, which houses the offices of local politicians who recently voted to legalize the killing of babies in the womb up to birth in Illinois. We will walk to the Rockford City Hall building where our cowardly city leaders have recently welcomed a well known abortionist back to our town to do his death business without a permit.

There is plenty of free parking near the rally site and there will be volunteers on hand directing you where to park. For your GPS, you can input: 200 S. Wyman Street., Rockford. There is also a parking garage within a few hundred feet from the rally site at: Concourse Garage, 200 Elm St., Rockford, IL 61101
