Northwest Pro-Life Conference
Join us in bringing all areas of the pro-life movement together to speak out for the preborn and make a difference!
“A DESTINATION FOR LIFE CHAMPIONS”
On June 24, 2022, the US Supreme Court’s decision in the Dobbs V Jackson case overturned Roe V. Wade and marked the official start of the new phase of the pro-life movement! This game-changing event was a huge step forward, but it also imposes new challenges, in a unique way, on states where abortion is still legal.
Within the last couple years, you may have heard people say something similar to this: “when Roe V Wade is overturned, states like Washington will become a destination for abortion.” Well, our local politicians are already working hard to make that a reality, as evidenced by the legislation that was proposed last session. Pro-abortion activists came unhinged over the Dobbs decision and are stopping at nothing to continue killing pre-born children.
We will not stand around and allow the place we call our home to become a safe haven for killing innocent human beings. The opposition is strong, so we must be also. This means the northwest is a destination, not for abortion, but for the best of the best, the most passionate and dedicated members of the pro-life movement, those who will persevere until abortion is no more. It is a “Destination for Life Champions.”
WHY ATTEND THE NORTHWEST PRO-LIFE CONFERENCE (NWPLC)?
The Northwest Pro-Life Conference will gather pro-lifers – organizations and individuals—from around this region all in the same place. We’re the only ones who fully understand what it’s like to be pro-life in this area. We face the same challenges, we’re surrounded by the same culture, and we have a common goal. Roe V. Wade is over. It’s time to work together to rid the northwest of the scourge of abortion.
Topics that will be covered:
How to Defend Your Pro-Life Position
Abortion Pill Reversal
Kicking Planned Parenthood Out of Schools
Youth must be accompanied by their parents. Any youth tickets not purchased alongside adult tickets cannot be honored.

Mariah McCarronStudents for Life of America, West Coast Regional Manager
Mariah McCarron grew up in Upstate New York and graduated from the State University of New York (SUNY) Geneseo after studying International Relations & Vocal Performance.
Mariah first became involved in the Pro-Life Movement during her freshman year of college, when she attended the Annual March in Washington with her college Students for Life group. Before that point, she had always been quietly pro-life, but struggled to speak out on the issue. Seeing the sheer magnitude of the movement – the countless youth in support of it, its diverse demographic, and, most importantly, its deep and intricate logic based in truth and love of neighbor – made the mission to protect and respect life one that her conscience would not allow her to ignore.
Mariah became involved in Students for Life at SUNY Geneseo from that point onward in her college career, becoming club president during her senior year. She is also a former Hildegard Art Fellow and a trained sidewalk advocate, before coming to work full-time in the fight for life shortly following her graduation.
Mariah currently resides in Sacramento, California and serves the Pro-Life Generation as West Coast Regional Manager. This work includes managing a team of Regional Coordinators across the Western United States.
Michael DumaisHuman Life of Washington
Michael Dumais became pro-life at an early age when he learned what abortion was. Many of his family have volunteered in compassionate pro-life outreach, including recovery programs for people suffering abortion-related trauma. He was taught to try to understand people on the other side of any issue, and was frustrated to see and to experience how common it is for pro-life and pro-choice people to talk past each other. He has devoted much of his professional career to understanding and teaching effective pro-life apologetics so that pro-lifers can speak the truth with love, respect, and a practical understanding of both sides of the issue.
Michael majored in history, with an emphasis on understanding struggles for human rights throughout history as well as the root causes of war and genocide. His studies have lent a unique perspective in studying the history of the abortion issue as well as other matters of human rights and equality.
