    The Erie March for Life is organized exclusively by People for Life, Inc., a Pennsylvania non-profit corporation based in the City of Erie, Pennsylvania. The pro-life march in Washington, DC that has taken place in January for nearly the same number of years is not affiliated formally or informally with the Erie March for Life.
    Erie March for Life
    Saturday, January 18, 2020   . . .    11 A.M.

    The next Erie March for Life will be January 23, 2021.

      Begins at Perry Square

      Please arrive at Perry Square by 10:45 a.m.
      The March will be followed by a closing program at the Pavilion in west Perry Square.
      The entire event will conclude by 12:30 p.m.

    The Erie March for Life will mark the 47th anniversary of the January 22, 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision, which struck down the abortion laws of all 50 states and allowed unborn children to be killed in the womb for any reason at any time during pregnancy.

    Everyone who is able to walk is strongly encouraged to do so, but those who would have difficulty walking the distance are encouraged to ride in the motorcade that will follow the marchers.

    The March will get underway from Perry Square in downtown Erie at 11 a.m.

    Parade marshals will stage vehicles for the motorcade beginning at 10:30 a.m. The vehicles will line up on the south side of Perry Square along South Park Row.

    Marchers should assemble at the new Pavilion in west Perry Square by 10:45 a.m. Parking will be available in the parking garage on Peach St. between 7th and 8th Sts. and in the lots just east of Perry Square on French St.

    Please remember to dress for winter weather and be sure to wear good, non-slip footwear, just in case you encounter any icy spots during the March.

    At 11:00 a.m., the March will proceed west on W. 6th St., south on Sassafras St., east on W. 10th St., and north on State St. back to Perry Square, where there will be a brief Pro-Life Rally.

    Speakers for the closing program will be announced.
