The Erie March for Life is organized by People for Life, Inc., a Pennsylvania non-profit corporation based in the City of Erie, Pennsylvania. We welcome everyone who supports the purpose of the March and the simple, straightforward mission of People for Life. The Erie March for Life is intended to be a show of support for the pro-life cause and an appeal to the better natures of our fellow residents and citizens. Accordingly, we do not use the event to draw inordinate attention to the People for Life organization. We ask that other participating organizations practice the same kind of deference. University pro-life groups and students representing area high schools will be the exceptions and can expect to receive the lion's share of any available limelight. Participants, both individuals and organizations, typically represent a broad spectrum of the Erie-area communities, and rightly so. (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.)
