Cardinal O’Connor Conference, 2020

The Collegiate Cultural Foundation is pleased to sponsor the Cardinal O’Connor Conference on Saturday, January 25, 2020.

The Cardinal O’Connor Conference on Life is the nation’s largest student-run pro-life conference, hosted at Georgetown University, in Washington, D.C. Each year, the Cardinal O’Connor Conference on Life strives to promote intellectually rigorous discourse on the sanctity of human life as well as build a culture of life both within and beyond the Georgetown community.

This year’s theme is “The Consistent Life Ethic and the Law: The Ethical Argument for Life.” As pro-life issues emerge at the forefront of our legal system, particularly taking into consideration the recent passage of pro-life laws on the state level, we will consider how these issues relate to both state laws and Constitutional law. Moreover, we will also consider how the proper understanding of the human person informs legislation. The keynote speakers for the 2020 Conference will be Dr. Jonathan Reyes and Sister Bethany Madonna.

Past conference speakers have included Reggie Littlejohn, Dr. Robert George, Helen Alvaré, Lila Rose, and Timothy Cardinal Dolan.
