The national March for Life organization has begun to organize these state marches as legislative action moves to the state level. One of the goals is to capture the attention of lawmakers and their staffs by hosting the rally and march on a day when they are in session.


The Diocese of Grand Rapids is working to arrange carpool options from the office. If you are interested in attending, please contact your parish office about a carpool or bus. Additionally, the diocese will be sponsoring two buses, one departing from Grand Rapids and one from Muskegon. The cost is $20/person. Email Jennifer Baxter, [email protected] for more information or to reserve your spot. To find other publicly available bus transportation, visit
