Three years of OneLife LA have taught us one thing about our OneLife LA community: their passion is relentless. We love this about our community because upholding human dignity demands passion. We stand behind a winning ideal that declares the incomparable value and worth of every human person. Come what may, we celebrate the uniqueness and beauty of everyone. And despite the setbacks, we know OneLife LA 2017 will be unforgettable.
The day is almost here. The day when we say to the world, “I CHOOSE LOVE!” The day when we stand in united defiance of a world that minimizes human life and rewrite the story. A day when our laughter, tears, joy, dancing will be the reverberating cheer that channels through our city: “Every life matters.”
So get out your planner and take notes. We need every one of you to be there and Choose Love. Here is EVERYTHING you need to know about OneLife LA 2017:
Location: The event will be at Exposition Park right in front of the Coliseum. (This is the same spot where the 1984 Olympic Games were held and Pope Saint John Paul II celebrated mass.)
Forecast: The weather is on our side this year! It’s predicted to be 62°and sunny!
Note: If you are traveling through Union Station, catch the Metro Red Line to the 7th Street stop and then transfer to the Metro Expo Line.
Community Partners: OneLife LA is proud to partner with 14 Southern California community service and outreach organizations to inspire positive action in our participants. These organizations provide life-affirming support to pregnant women, assist the homeless, trafficking survivors, the elderly, the disabled and the dying, and help foster children find adoptive families – and they’ll all be at OneLife LA. Our partners this year include 40 Days for Life, Olivecrest, the American Red Cross, The Dream Center, App for Life, Family Promise, Obria Medical Clinics, Merciful Companions, A21, Covenant House, Saving Innocence and more. Plan to stop by their tents this Saturday and learn how you can get involved in life-giving ministries throughout the whole year.
