March for Life's mission is to promote the beauty and dignity of every human life by working to end abortion—uniting, educating, and mobilizing pro-life people in the public square. Hundreds of thousands have been joining the mission of the March since its inception. The March happens every year in January, but it is also a mission that spans the country and the digital sphere 365 days a year. We march because we envision a future world where the beauty and dignity of every human life are valued and protected.
