Join us at The Open Door, a program called to building a culture of life and a just social order! Our panel discusses solidarity, subsidiarity, and economic democracy in light of Catholic Social Teaching. We also explore non-violence, distributism, and communitarianism. The next question? How do we move from discussion to political and personal activism? It's a question that often leads us to report on the short term projects and long term promise of the American Solidarity Party.  Click here for the show descriptions.

This week, with Christy Yao in the lead, we’ll discuss the 2019 March for Life in Washington, D.C. and the OneLife LA March in Los Angeles.Here are the questions we’ll explore.

  1. What are some of the memorable experiences of the events that participants are reporting?
  2. Was media coverage of these pro-life events satisfactory?
  3. How can major pro-life events be catalysts for the ongoing pro-life struggle?
  4. President Trump has supported pro-life efforts, and his message to D.C. marchers is an example of his support. Will there be a backlash against the pro-life movement after the Trump leaves office? If so, how might we prepare for it?
