The March for Life was founded in 1973, when a group of pro-life leaders gathered at Nellie Gray’s home in Washington, D.C. to express concern that the first Anniversary of Roe v. Wade would come and go with no recognition. 

On January 22, 1974 the first March for Life was held on the steps of the Capitol. Pro-lifers have been Marching for Life every year since! 

The March for Life is held every year on or near the Anniversary of Roe v. Wade, January 22. Pro-lifers gather to peacefully protest legal abortion in America. Hundreds of thousands of Americans come to the March for Life to be a voice for the unborn!
