Each year, the Human Life Review honors a worthy person or persons with its Great Defender of Life Award. A fund raising dinner is held each fall at the Union League Club in New York City’s Murray Hill neighborhood. The club’s warm atmosphere and the gathering of like-minded people makes this dinner a NYC pro-life scene favorite, and many of our loyal readers and supporters come year after year.
We’d like to invite you to join this special and growing family.
