University / Students for Life Events

How to Organize and Promote Your On-Campus Event

 

Due Diligence

At universities, my speech is typically a one hour presentation with a 30-minute Q & A.  The KEY is to go to  professors, tell them about your speaker, and ask if they’ll give extra credit to students who attend and write a 2-page essay about it.  

 
Central Michigan University Students for Life put in the due diligence received a standing ovation from at least 90% of the audience.

 


 

Speech Topics

My speech focuses on these topics:

  • Adoption
  • Domestic Violence
  • Rape
  • Abortion
  • Philosophy
  • Law
  • Overcoming Adversity
  • Value
  • Identity
  • Purpose
 
For bio info to provide to professors, see my page, About Rebecca .  

I strongly recommend using the Feminists for Life poster of me,“Did I Deserve the Death Penalty?” to
promote the event on campus, or this photo (see left side bar) is good because you can have info on the event printed on the background. 

Order lots of extras, because they’ll get pulled down, as you can imagine. You may want to also let the local Right to Life affiliate, the local crisis pregnancy center(s) and local churches/Catholic Respect Life Committees know that I’ll be in town presenting, as well as the Young Republican Club and Christian/Catholic groups on campus such as the Newman Center, Campus Crusade for Christ or Intervarsity Christian Fellowship.

 


 

The best professors to ask are:

  • Philosophy
  • Speech/Persuasive
  • Communication (since I am a
  • professional speaker — my speech
  • is both persuasive and
  • inspirational)
  • Marriage and Family
  • Government
  • Political Science
  • Constitutional Law
  • Journalism
