All of our events strongly adhere to and enforce the “Nonviolent” philosophy embraced by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. If you cannot remain nonviolent, please do not attend our events.
We walk because abortion in the Black community is a form of genocide, it is the Darfur of America. We walk because abortion in Black America is the civil rights issue of our day. We walk because abortion does violence, both physically and emotionally, to men and women, to their children, and to their families.
Walk with us and help us change the perceptions of a culture that thinks aborting children is an option.

Denise Walker woke up from the anesthesia, she could hear other women screaming and crying, “Jesus, forgive me – I killed my baby.” Suddenly, anger rose up in her. It started in her toes and rose up through her feet and legs. She pushed it down before it could rise further — but the anger did not leave her. It was January 1980 and Denise had just awakened after having her third abortion. When she and her fiancé Brian Walker discovered she was pregnant 4 months before their wedding, they panicked and were fearful. Though crisis pregnancy counseling existed at the time, they weren’t aware of it. Feeling alone and desperate, they decided on abortion. They had no idea how this decision would affect the rest of their lives. Brian and Denise had met in college in 1977. However, despite his Presbyterian and her new age backgrounds, neither of them had a personal relationship with Christ. Denise grew up knowing nothing about Christ. But she did know about contraceptives, and between the ages of 15 and 25, Denise had been sexually active with 49 different men. They were without hope and without God in this world. The death certificate for Denise’s first aborted child … To finish reading Denise’s life changing testimony click here.
