Jeanie Mancici gives her keynote speech for the annual Prayer Day inside the new Lumen Vitae University Center on Wednesday, 11-15-2017. Mancici, president of the March for Life Education and Defense Fund based in Washington, D.C., spoke to the large audience about this year's theme of "Pray and Work: Building a Culture of Life" and the non-profit's pro-life message. "It's so life giving to be with young people," Mancici said. " The students here are so self confident, independent and a very healthy sense of groundedness."
