Local Public Square Outreach R US
PLW's identity and mission is "public square engagement." Our outreach events affirm our allies, encourage pro-life fans to become activists, and undercut abortion providers and their enablers. We want no Central Texan to live a week, or even a day, without seeing a life-defender message. We seek to grow our base of active support. We seek to convert or paralyze proponents of the Culture of Death.
