  The 20th Annual Great Defender of Life Dinner

OCTOBER 12, 2023


Thomas Brejcha, ESQ. and Professor George McKenna




More about our annual dinners:

Each year,* the Human Life Review honors a worthy person or persons with its Great Defender of Life Award. A fundraising dinner is held each fall at the Union League Club in New York City’s Murray Hill neighborhood. The club’s warm atmosphere and the gathering of like-minded people make this dinner a NYC pro-life scene favorite, and many of our loyal readers and supporters come year after year. 

We’d like to invite you to join this special and growing family. 

Check this page for regular info and updates about our most current and past dinners, and as always, feel free to add your comments and questions!
