Walter B. Hoye II is both Founder and President of the Issues4Life Foundation, the California Civil Rights Foundation, Founder of the Frederick Douglass Foundation of California, co-founder and Executive Member of the National Black Pro-Life Coalition, a Board Member of The Morning Center (providing free full-service maternity care for women in urban and under-served areas), a published author (Leadership from the IN|SIDE Out), a board member of The Ruth Institute, a full-time pro-life activist, and a leadership consultant.
As a young man, Walter played football at Michigan State University, where he graduated with a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Sociology. He graduated from the United States International University, now Alliant International University, with a Master's degree in Business Administration in 1983.
In 1984, God used the premature birth of his firstborn son (six months, 2.1 pounds) to teach Rev. Hoye that the preborn is a person, a living & breathing human being.
Walter is an ordained Baptist minister. He served as Minister of Christian Education at the St. John Missionary Baptist Church in Oceanside, California, as Assistant to the Pastor and Director of the Youth Department at the Greater Faith Baptist Church in Stockton, California, and as the Executive Elder of the Progressive Missionary Baptist Church of Berkeley. In May of 2010, Walter resigned to work full-time in the Pro-Life movement. He was asked to join a group of pro-life sidewalk counselors, to pray and give out literature to women on their way to the entrance of an abortuary. His ministry blossomed so much that the abortuary lost a great deal of business, and they complained to the Oakland authorities, who literally created a law just to put Rev. Hoye in jail. Though in court Rev. Hoye and his attorney from Life Legal Defense proved both that Walter did absolutely nothing illegal and that the only witness against him blatantly lied, the pro-abortion judge made sure Rev. Hoye unjustly went to jail, which he did. The judge, in fact, sought to sentence Walter to four *years* in jail for standing on a public sidewalk, but could not because of a legal technicality.
Walter leads the Oakland pro-life march. He competes in the San Francisco Marathon and catches an NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB game whenever he can.

Meet Jim, Gail, and Jackie! Last year we got to meet them at the Summit, our annual conference. We'd like to share what they're up to as we put the final preparations in place for our Summit this year.
The Simple Truth, hosted by Jim Havens, airs each weekday from 4-5pm (ET) on The Station of the Cross Radio Network. Jim received his masters in Theology from Franciscan University, and his bachelors degree in Media Studies from the University at Buffalo. He also has a masters of fine arts in Screenwriting from Hollins University. Jim has more than 15 years of experience in apostolic work with Catholic parishes, schools, organizations, and media. "The goal of my 'career' is to live my mission: to love God and love people by leading young and old deeper into the transforming, life-giving reality of Jesus and His Catholic Church. Beyond seeking to live my primary vocation of husband and father to the full, I want to use everything I am to help lead others to their true greatness in Christ."
Gail Finke is the producer of Driving Home the Faith, a Catholic radio show broadcast from Cincinnati on the Sacred Heart Radio network. Involved with Sacred Heart Radio since her days as an intern, Gail has worked as a writer, editor, and author; ran the local Catholic web magazine, The Catholic Beat, and designed The Catholic Telegraph. Gail is from Pennsylvania, a revert to the Catholic faith whose most recent non-media job was at Greater Cincinnati Right to Life. She has two grown children and likes to attend FC Cincinnati matches with her husband.
Jackie Aguilar is an expert in the field of fertility regulation through natural means. She teaches both the Couple to Couple League and the Creighton Methods of Natural Family Planning. She is also a board member of Natural Womanhood. Jackie graduated from Texas A&M University with a bachelors in marketing. After an extremely frustrating experience with the birth control pill that diminished her physical attraction for her husband, she learned a natural method of fertility awareness and used it to plan, to the month, the birth of three children. Creighton charting and NaProTechnology were instrumental in helping her and her husband conceive a fourth child after months of infertility and a miscarriage.

Fr Stephen Imbarrato, a pro-life activist, commonly referred to as the “Protest Priest,” has made regular appearances on EWTN Catholic TV and is one of the leaders of the Red Rose Rescue movement. Fr Stephen believes we can end preborn child killing peacefully yet decisively...and sooner than we may think is possible.
While attending Holy Apostles Seminary, Father helped start a crisis pregnancy center across the street from an abortion business. He explains, “…being across from the abortion mill showed me how important it is to have ministries of life directly across from the gates of death.”
Ordained in May of 2005 for the Archdiocese of Santa Fe, Father Stephen learned of a small adoration chapel located directly across from a Planned Parenthood facility in Albuquerque. Using the chapel as a focal point and prompted by the Holy Spirit to rejuvenate Project Life–which was dedicated to prayer vigils and sidewalk counseling in front of Planned Parenthood–Father Stephen gathered a group of laypeople, forming the Project Defending Life.
