Alissa Golob, 26, the national youth coordinator for Campaign Life Coalition (CLC), got involved in pro-life activism the old-fashioned way: through "snail mail." For full story see The B.C. Catholic website.

The Knights of Columbus are known for their pro-life initiatives, and the youngest council of knights in B.C. is contributing to the movement on a local campus.
