Training Pro-Life Advocates to Think Clearly, Reason Honestly, and Argue Persuasively

Register for Our Sacramento Seminars!

We recently booked an ERI seminar and outreach in Sacramento for the last weekend of February. The crazy thing is, our Saturday seminar all but filled up before we even began promoting it! So we’ve added a Sunday afternoon option.

Josh and Tim Brahm will teach and mentor you personally to make sure you get the most out of the day. This seminar is designed to train you to have productive conversations with pro-choice people, using the arguments and dialogue skills that will be most likely to change their mind.

Will Smith was recently featured along with several other actors on one of The Hollywood Reporter’s (THR) hour-long roundtable discussions. Not only did Will Smith make a relativistic statement, but the interviewer asked precisely the right question to push back against his view!

It’s worth taking a few minutes to analyze what Will Smith said because his view is unfortunately common and it’s helpful to take a close look at the views of those with whom we disagree.

ERI Articles About the Planned Parenthood Videos

The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) videos about Planned Parenthood have created a historic moment for the pro-life movement.

We Have a New Advisory Board!

We’ve purposefully put together an advisory board of people whose advice we not only respect, but who have a diverse set of experiences and areas of expertise. By having all of these people speaking into what we’re doing on an ongoing basis, we’re confident that we can direct Equal Rights Institute into becoming the best that it can be.

This advisory board is different than our Board of Directors, who meet quarterly to provide accountability, go over our financial reports, and make the decisions that only a Board of Directors can make. In contrast, the members of the Board of Advisors will meet with Josh one-on-one at least once a year to discuss our vision and offer their counsel.

Meet Our New Staff Person!

We have a new staff member! Christina came out to join us in Michigan to both participate in the outreach and interview. It was so obvious to our entire staff that Christina is a great fit at ERI.

Christina’s primary role at Equal Rights Institute is blogging and raising the funds we need to train pro-life students through training events, campus outreaches, and book publishing.
