40 Days for Life

Come experience 40 Days for Life with us in Lawndale. We gather together in front of a local abortion clinic (14623 Hawthorne Blvd, Lawndale) to pray, to offer information andsupport to women and couples entering the clinic, and to be a witness for the protection of life to the broader public. The sidewalk is very broad, however, it is directly on the Blvd. so we recommend bringing children that are older than 8-10 years or small enough to be held. For anyone with issues standing, bring a portable chair or stool. Bathrooms are available around the corner at the Community Center. We look forward to having you with us!
