  • Description: San Francisco’s 12th Annual Walk for Life West Coast will feature a slate of international pro-life stars. The January 23, 2016 event will include speakers from Africa and Latin America as well as from the United States. “The pro-life movement is represented in every country on the planet,” says Walk co-chair Eva Muntean, “and we are delighted and honored to welcome speakers who exemplify that diversity.” One of the 2016 speakers is Jesús Emmanuel Acha Martinez, known everywhere throughout the Spanish-speaking world simply as Emmanuel. Emmanuel will be joined by Obianuju Ekeocha, founder and president of Culture of Life Africa. Obianuju has advised almost 20 African bishops on women’s and life issues, has met with Pope Francis, and co-authored two declarations with African bishops promoting the gospel of life in Africa. She holds a Master’s degree in biomedical science and a Bachelor’s degree in microbiology.
