These new Board Members were nominated and voted into the Pro-Life Union’s Board of Directors for their pro-life activism in the community, motivation to reach different generations and educate them about the sanctity of human life, and their participation in pro-life efforts.

Liana Hollendonner shared her enthusiasm about this new role with the Pro-Life Union: “It is an honor to join a board of so many influential pro-life leaders. I look forward to bringing more youth into the movement and helping to create a culture of life.”

Kim Bennett also expressed her positive outlook toward this leadership opportunity: “I look forward to partnering with the Pro-Life Union in order to help promote a culture of life in Philadelphia and the surrounding areas. Women who make the courageous decision to continue a pregnancy to term need to know there are those who want to walk alongside them.”
