The Fairbanks-based Right to Life Interior Alaska will be holding an important meeting later this month to reorganize under new leadership.

Lance Roberts serves as chair of the organization, but he is stepping down this summer to run for the Fairbanks Assembly.

“We’ve decided to use this as an opportunity to think about a change of direction and need everyone’s input,” Roberts wrote in a June 14 email to supporters.

The gathering, which is expected to draw a large group of pro-life advocates from around the region, will take place on Friday, June 25 at 7 p.m. at 3633 Antone Ave in North Pole.

Founded in 1979, Right to Life Interior is one of the state’s oldest and most recognized pro-life organizations. Comprised entirely of volunteers and donor supported, the group maintains that “all human life is sacred from fertilization to natural death.” According to the group’s Facebook page, its mission is to “share life-affirming information about abortion and euthanasia.”

Each year, the group has a presence at various fairs, festivals and events in interior Alaska. Additionally, it holds an annual Roe v. Wade memorial on Jan. 22 in public locations where pro-life advocates hold signs about the tragedy of the 1973 Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion across America.
