  • Gender Equality for Girls (Youth)

This presentation is listed as a “drop-off session for girls only ages six – ten.” That means parents are not welcome to hear what their young children will be learning in the “youth empowerment room.”

Every pro-lifer – young and old – is invited to peacefully protest this outrageous festival sponsored by a Catholic university.

Abortion and homosexual vice offend God so much.
