Clark’s Students for Life Club Focuses on Off-Campus Advocacy During COVID-19

Clark’s Students for Life club adapted due to COVID-19 and is one of the only clubs still functioning despite their diminished on-campus presence. 

The Clark chapter of this club is part of a bigger national Students for Life organization that supports pro-life ideology, recruits students to the movement and mobilizes members for volunteer and education purposes. 

Previously the Students for Life club had a heavy presence on-campus. They were often seen displaying activism outside Gaiser Hall or holding events, such as hosting speakers or movie nights. 

Now most of their activism takes place off-campus volunteering at pregnancy research centers, working with other pro-life organizations and attending events sponsored by the national Students for Life organization.

Most recently the club traveled to Tacoma to do door knocking and share pregnancy resources as part of a Students for Life campaign. 

According to club President Ben Poletti, club growth has been stifled this year due to COVID-19. Poletti invites students who are pro-life or who would like to learn more about the pro-life movement to check out their club. 

“I think our club is mostly for people who are pro-life, who want some kind of community to be a part of while they’re attending Clark College,” said Poletti. “Even those who are not like minded but are interested in learning more, we try to be as open as possible.”
