Engaging Youth for Life

June 5-July 31, 2023

Throughout the months of June and July, Anglicans For Life, in partnership with Abundant Life, will engage youth for life through a variety of activities. Over the course of two months, Anglicans For Life's Youth and Outreach Coordinator, Sammie Gallo, will focus on uprooting lies and planting truths in the hearts of young people through engaging videos, resources, and graphics. Anglicans For Life believes it is important to engage people (both students and adults) in educational opportunities that equip them to speak the truth about the Sanctity of Life in a culture that uses misinformation to mislead people about abortion.

Sammie Pic

Sammie Gallo BSN, RN

Sammie graduated from Robert Morris University in 2017 with a background in biology and psychology and started working with Anglicans for Life (AFL) in 2017. In addition to her work with AFL, she spent 3 years going into public schools with the Women’s Choice Network, speaking to high schoolers about healthy relationships and sex education. She has a passion for making sure every teenager, parent, and youth leader is equipped, engaged, and encouraged to have Gospel-centered conversations regarding relationships, sexuality, and life issues.

Sammie married her best friend, Juan Gallo, in May 2019. During her free time, she and her husband invest in teenagers and young adults in their community, disciple their daughter, Ofie, and Sammie recently began a new career path as a nurse in emergency medicine.


Canon Georgette Forney

Canon Georgette is President of Anglicans For Life, the only global Anglican ministry dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia through ministry, education, pastoral care, and advocacy in partnership with the Anglican Communion. She is also the co-founder of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, an effort to raise awareness about the physical, spiritual, and emotional harm abortion does to women and to let those who are hurting from abortion know help is available. Georgette had an abortion at age sixteen and later experienced healing, forgiveness, and reconciliation after going through an abortion recovery program. Through that she developed a greater understanding of the negative impact abortion has on women and the need to highlight the issue as an abortion survivor.
