WASHINGTON, DC (MetroCatholic) – Today the Susan B. Anthony List announced the keynote speaker for their May event, the Celebration of Life Breakfast. The 2008 GOP Vice-Presidential Nominee and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin will headline the Susan B. Anthony List’s annual spring event, which will be held at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, D.C. on May 14, 2010.
“Susan B. Anthony would be proud of Governor Palin’s consistent, passionate witness for women and the unborn, and especially her commitment to the families of children with special needs,” said Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Governor Palin is the modern personification of the authentic leadership modeled by early women’s rights trailblazers like Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Our nation’s earliest women leaders understood that women’s rights could never be advanced at the expense of the broken rights of innocent unborn children.”
“Governor Palin sees the value, necessity, and joy inherent in every human life,” continued Marjorie Dannenfelser, “and that quality rises above and beyond politics.”
The Susan B. Anthony List event will be open to the public and tickets can be purchased at www.sba-list.org/breakfast.
“We are thrilled that Governor Palin will be joining the Susan B. Anthony List for our May fundraiser,” said Susan B. Anthony List General Chairman Jane Abraham. “As a mother, wife, and successful leader–she embodies what it means to be a pro-life feminist today. From moms at the PTA to women leaders in the boardroom, Sarah Palin continues to serve as a role model for what it means to be a true American woman leader, and we are honored to have her stand with us.”
In September 2008, the Susan B. Anthony List founded Team Sarah, a coalition of diverse women dedicated to advancing Sarah Palin’s Vice Presidential candidacy. Team Sarah sought to advance Sarah Palin’s candidacy nationwide and launched http://www.teamsarah.org/, a social networking site that grew to over 75,000 members.
The Susan B. Anthony List is a nationwide network of Americans, over 280,000 residing in all 50 states, dedicated to mobilizing, advancing, and representing pro-life women in politics. Its connected Candidate Fund increases the percentage of pro-life women in the political process. (153)
