As President of Students for Life of America (SFLA), Kristan Hawkins has spent more than 16 years building a national network of more than 1,400 student-lead groups in all 50 states, layering campus activism with political engagement through Students for Life Action.
With the Students for Life team, Kristan has launched key initiatives such as the Campaign for Abortion Free Cities, StandingWithYou.org, and the Demetree Institute for Pro-Life Advancement. Recently, she and her team are leading the pro-life movement’s response to the proliferation of dangerous Chemical Abortion Pills at ThisisChemicalAbortion.com.
Kristan travels the nation to speak on college campuses such as UC-Berkeley, Harvard, Dartmouth, and Ohio State University to educate our youth on the horrors of abortion. Video clips from these tours have been viewed tens of millions of times. She hosts a bi-weekly podcast called Explicitly Pro-Life and regularly appears in the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, NPR, and others.
Kristan was honored to announce the reversal of Roe v. Wade on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court on June 24th, 2022, witnessing the end of the Supreme Court’s roadblock to state and federal engagement on abortion. Since launching Students for Life, the Pro-Life Generation has been given a voice in Kristan, and they are using that voice to demand an end to abortion and a nation that truly “loves them both.”
