Students for Life of America created the Sock the Vote Campus Tour to equip students across America to join the national dialogue about why voting pro-life matters and to expose the tragedy of abortion, that 2,362 lives are ended each day.
Traveling to over 100 schools this fall, both in-person with 2,362 baby socks and digitally with an informative online voting quiz, the tour will explore:
- Why to vote pro-life
- Abortion extremism
- How you can get involved
Tour Plan Overview
We plan to bring the Sock the Vote Tour to students, both on campus and online.
Tier One Schools: Campus Visits
The tour will consist of an eye-catching interactive banner, an extremism-exposing game, 2,362 baby socks to represent the number of abortions that are committed each day in the U.S., and a pledge to vote pro-life, as well as buttons, stickers, and other giveaways.
Our Regional Coordinators will equip student leaders with materials, trainings, and talking points for successful on-campus outreach.
Some schools are expecting limited methods of outreach, so we will work with our student groups to flyer, chalk, and outreach on campus in the unique ways they are allowed. This may mean leaving a display in a display case, displaying the 2,362 baby socks in a Cemetery of the Innocents format, providing a banner to hang in the Student Center, or sending in a slide to display on campus monitors.
Tier Three Schools: Digital Outreach
It is on us this fall to be flexible. That is why we are expanding this tour to reach students online. Student for Life groups will be equipped with social media graphics, flyers, a campus quiz, pre-written emails to the student body, and more.
On-campus and digital efforts can be combined for an even greater effect.
REASONS TO VOTE PRO-LIFE
The Supreme Court and federal judges are appointed by the President. From 2016-2020, over 200 pro-life judges have been granted lifelong appointments across the country.
Our representatives, whether in Washington D.C. or your state’s capital, can enact pro-life laws and prevent pro-abortion laws. Even city hall and your mayor have the power to shape a community for or against abortion.
Taxpayer-funded abortion, late-term abortion, no parental consent, campus abortions, no health standards or regulations… All of this is happening and legal in our nation, and most Americans are against it.
