The Clarkson Academy
The Clarkson Academy exists to produce effective ambassadors for the most vulnerable in our society – preborn children.
Named after the British abolitionist Thomas Clarkson, who worked with William Wilberforce to bring an end to the Slave Trade, the Academy seeks to raise up pro-life leaders who are equipped with a good understanding of strategy and effective arguments. By educating the public and shifting public opinion about the evil of slavery and the identity of its victims, Thomas Clarkson’s campaigning gave meaning to William Wilberforce’s legislative work. If we are to see lives saved and the Law once again protect the pre-born child we must first learn how to shift public opinion.
We are bringing together some of the best pro-life leaders in the world for a two day conference in London. You will be trained to defend the pro-life position and will be given practical guidance on how to focus that knowledge on fruitful, strategic pro-life work. By equipping and activating a network of motivated, loving and confident pro-life leaders we can turn around the present desperate situation.
There is a small charge (£40) for the Academy but if cost alone would prevent you from coming, please let us know. We hope to be able to advise on cheap accommodation options in London.
