Artists for Life Levels of Affiliation 2.0 .pdf File

What does it mean to be “affiliated” with Artists for Life?

We bring together artists in our common cause: the defense of the defenseless, the celebration of Life!

This allows us to communicate, network, and support each other.  We then will use our combined talents,
vision and faith to impact our culture for life.

United Collaboration – Examples of How We Support Each Other

– We can work together on events which showcase artists and their work
– Collaborate on exhibits, concerts, artistic projects, and events
– Network and fellowship online and in person
– Cross Promote each other’s web and social media platforms
– Support the work of Cherish Life Ministries

How can we defend the defenseless?  We can:

– Speak on behalf of the dignity of life whenever possible
– Produce events or artistic statements that attracts media attention to the Defense of Life
– Donate to life affirming efforts
– Encourage artists to become involved in a Life Ministry in church
– Educate ourselves and others on life issues (abortion, euthanasia, human rights, freedom of conscience,
elder abuse and neglect, the disabled, human trafficking)
– Support bills that defend the defenseless
