Jacob Nels

Operations Coordinator

Jacob Nels left a 16-year career as a carpenter to follow his passion for investing in the lives of people by taking a job with Justice For All. Since 2008, Jacob has been working to make abortion unthinkable, to make Jesus thinkable, and teaching others to do the same. Jacob works to show pro-life and pro-choice people that humans matter more than divisive arguments. Through respectful dialogue, sound reasoning and compassion, Jacob hopes to teach pro-life advocates to love their neighbors and go teach others to do the same. During his time as a pro-life ambassador, God has used Jacob to help save dozens of lives from abortion and teach hundreds of pro-life people grow in compassion and understanding for the pro-choice people they disagree with. Jacob has witnessed thousands of people on both sides of the issue cease fighting toe-to-toe and move to a place of respectful understanding for their fellow human.

Jacob’s primary role at Equal Rights Institute is helping pro-life campus clubs to go through the necessary steps to ensure a successful and well-attended seminar and outreach.
