"In the ongoing travesty of the debate over whether abortion and infanticide should be condoned, a voice in the wilderness continues to cry out, 'what about the children?'"

Childress, will address leaders in the African-American community and speak out for the future of the yet unborn at the "Leadership for Life" conference in Berkeley, California.

During the years of the Civil Rights Movement, led by her Uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Alveda's family home was bombed in Birmingham, Alabama. In the heat of the struggle, "Daddy's house was bombed, then in Louisville, Kentucky his church office was bombed. I was also jailed during the open housing movement," Dr. King recalls.
Alveda has continued her long-term work as a civil rights activist, speaking out on issues that face society today. "Perhaps the most compelling issue of all is the life of the unborn," Alveda continues by saying "Faith in God, and the commitment to fulfill His will for our lives -- not faith in government bureaucracy -- is the key to positive action. Have faith in God!" This is the message that Alveda carries to the world.
