You Can Make A Difference for Life on Your Campus!

Our mission is to make euthanasia, infanticide, abortion and destruction of human embryos socially, ethically and legally unacceptable solutions to human problems and to promote positive alternatives to each of these acts.

What We Do

  • Construct on-campus displays like the Cemetery of the Innocents, symbolizing the more than 62 million babies lost to abortion since the tragic 1973 Roe v. Wade decision by the United States Supreme Court.
  • Host nationally known speakers who bring their passion for life and powerful stories to our campuses.
  • Hand out pamphlets with convincing, factual information on pro-life issues.
  • Sponsor and/or participate in campus debates on pro-life issues.
  • Help students who are pregnant become aware of their options and encourage them to make life-affirming decisions.
  • Work to inform and educate the student body about current legislative issues.


You could earn a $1,500 student grant by organizing projects and events that raise Right-to-Life issue awareness on your university or college campus.

Each fall grants are awarded to students attending various Wisconsin colleges and universities. Click here for Grant requirements.

Calling all pro-life college students!
Do you want to become an invaluable part of Wisconsin’s pro-life movement? Join our internship program!

Available: Year-Round

Hours: Varied, minimum of 8-10 hours per week

Description: Wisconsin Right to Life is Wisconsin’s oldest and largest pro-life organization that works to ensure life is protected from the moment of fertilization to natural death. Interns quickly become invaluable assets to our legislative, communications, and development departments, assisting with day-to-day operations and projects as well as a self-designed internship project that will be presented to Wisconsin Right to Life leadership at the end of the internship experience.  Through working closely with our department leaders, interns will learn the basics of how a non-profit operates, the history and strategy of the pro-life movement, and the skills to be an effective advocate for the right to life in their communities.

Why Wisconsin Right to Life?

  • Interns have the opportunity to participate in Wisconsin Right to Life’s many events throughout the year, such as Education Fund Dinner, State Conference, Teen Impact Camp, and Veritas Fundraising Receptions. These events attract high-profile speakers and are an excellent source of education and inspiration for all who attend.
  • If you choose to intern at Wisconsin Right to Life’s state office rather than remotely, our office is conveniently located near many Milwaukee area attractions, such as American Family Field and Fiserv Forum, the Milwaukee County Zoo, Summerfest, the State Fair, and many other historical landmarks and entertainment events.
  • There is a great need for innovators not only in our organization, but in pro-life movement all around the country. We regularly hear about pro-life leadership openings in national and state right to life organizations, and our goal is to develop leaders that understand what it takes to fully manage a pro-life organization as a part of the next generation of effective and successful pro-life leaders.

Requirements: Interns must have a full commitment to Wisconsin Right to Life’s principles, demonstrate an ability to take on challenges, and must have a knowledge of social media and Microsoft Office software. Internships can either be done remotely or in Wisconsin Right to Life’s Milwaukee office. Any student with a strong interest in pro-life work may apply regardless of major (example majors: Communications, Graphic Design, Pre-Law, Business, or Pre-Med majors, etc).

The following is needed to apply:

1.) Your resume and references

2.) A one-page statement of your pro-life beliefs

3.) Your preferences on when you’d like your internship to start and what your areas of interest are in the pro-life movement

Do you qualify for a Great Lakes or a WAICU grant, or are you seeking college credit? Please let us know so we can coordinate with your school ASAP.

Note: WRTL interns may receive a stipend for their work. We highly recommend pursuing college credit if possible. Housing and transportation are your responsibility. Start and end dates are flexible, depending on the beginning/end of your semesters.
