This year NCLN is launching a brand new initiative to train Canadian youth on how to address the topic of abortion on campus in the most effective way. The Momentum Tour was strategically structured to have a special event held in Ottawa to launch the tour.
The Momentum Tour will kick off with a conference featuring former abortionist, Dr. Anthony Levatino and a leadership training bootcamp weekend for pro-life student leaders. Following this event, NCLN will tour all of its Canadian campuses in order to give on-the-ground training to all pro-life student activists.
Help us raise $30 000 to make it happen.
The Momentum Tour will begin in Ottawa with a talk by Dr. Anthony Levatino. Dr. Anthony Levatino is a board certified obstetrician-gynaecologist with 40 years of medical experience. He is a physician and lawyer, and taught as an associate professor of OB-GYN at Albany Medical Center, where he also served as the Medical Student Director and Residency Program Director. In the early part of his career, Dr. Levatino performed over 1200 abortions in the first and second trimesters. He also plays the doctor performing an ultrasound guided abortion in the movie Unplanned.
Dr. Anthony’s testimony of leaving the abortion industry will inspire hundreds of people to act against abortion in Ottawa this summer. Some of those individuals are our Pro-Life Campus Club Student Leaders who will be flown in to attend this event. Our students will then attend the NCLN two-day intensive Leadership Bootcamp, where they will receive the best strategies for bringing the pro-life message to campus!
Then our students will return home well equipped to begin enlivened activism on their campuses, aiming to reach 1600 young people this academic year.
This special kick-off event will be followed by the tour, where our Executive Director will travel across Canada to help club leaders apply their training on campus. The tour has been broken down into two legs.
The first leg focusses on the campuses we work with in Eastern Canada, and it is planned to happen during the Fall semester of 2019. The second leg of the tour focusses on the clubs we have in Western Canada, aimed to happen in the winter semester of 2020.
This entire project will cost $30,000.
We have broken our goal into 3 smaller goals. Help us achieve this mission by funding the first fundraising tier for this project:
We need to raise $14 000 by August 16 to bring Dr. Anthony Levatino and our student leaders to Ottawa and to cover the costs for the Leadership Training Bootcamp! The first $6000 raised for this first tier will be matched by a team of generous donors.
Please also consider signing up to receive email updates, as everyone opting for that who has supported this initiative will be sent a link to see Dr. Levatino's talk.
After we have raised this first tier, we will require to raise an additional $5000 by September 1st. This will cover the travel costs to reach 8 Eastern Canada locations.
And finally, an additional $11,000 will need to raise by January 1st, 2020, in order to cover 8 locations in Western Canada.
You have seen NCLN be instrumental to bring Unplanned to Canada, and aid to have private screenings thanks to the support of people like you. We now need your financial support to keep fighting the hub of abortionism on Canadian campuses. Help us keep the momentum going!
