Emily Wilkinson, West Coast Regional Coordinator Emily Wilkinson

Emily Wilkinson has been attending pro-life rallies since she was a babe in arms. During high school, she felt strongly drawn toward ending the injustice of abortion, and, seeing the need for her peers to be educated, she started a pro-life club. During college she discovered Students for Life of America and started another pro-life club at Montana State University, bringing the problem of abortion to the forefront of a hostile campus culture. She founded her college town’s annual March for Life as a club-sponsored event, which has since grown in size and helped unify the local pro-life movement.

Emily graduated in 2011 with a degree in Liberal Studies. During and after college, she worked at a non-profit clinic with low-cost family healthcare and free pregnancy services, helping to develop its community outreach efforts and pregnancy resources. In addition, she led several 40 Days for Life campaigns, watching the community unite in prayer and peaceful vigil and finally celebrating the closing of the Mountain Country Women’s Clinic abortion facility. She has spoken at multiple pro-life events and rallies and volunteered with pro-life political candidates.

Emily is inspired by youth-led social reforms such as the Civil Rights movement, and is excited to see the rising pro-life generation walk in their footsteps and transform the culture! She is excited to educate and equip students in the West Coast region (CA, AZ, or NV) to be effective advocates for the pre-born.
