An Insider’s Look at Sidewalk Advocacy

May 7, 2019 | Blog, Podcast | 0 comments

We’re excited to share with you our latest episode from The Empowered Advocate podcast, Sidewalk Advocacy: An Insider’s Look. On this episode, we interview Carla Stowers, team leader for the GPCC sidewalk advocacy team. She gives an insider’s perspective of what takes place on the sidewalk outside of an abortion facility in Greensboro.

Carla shares her story about how she got involved as an advocate despite initially saying there was “no way” she’d ever serve in such a role. Carla talks about the dynamics between pregnancy center volunteers and abortion facility volunteers, the strong community she’s built with her fellow advocates, and a story of a woman who chose life.

Listen to the episode below, watch it on our YouTube channel, or listen wherever you can find podcasts. Check out the timestamps below to jump to each question/topic we discuss. We hope this gives you a better idea of what sidewalk advocacy is all about, and maybe even encourages you to take the next step and come to our next Open House on Monday, May 20 (which you can register for by clicking here).

You can also see below a list of links and resources mentioned within the episode. Happy listening!
