Kristan Hawkins

President of Students for Life of America, Author and Podcast Host

Kristan Hawkins is a Christian, wife, mother, grassroots activist, author, speaker, Podcast host and a human rights advocate. President of Students for Life of America, she was recruited in 2006 to launch Students for Life of America’s full-time operation. Since then, she has built up a small organization made up of a few dozen student groups scattered around the country to a coordinated national team serving more than 1,200 Students for Life chapters in all fifty states. She hosts a weekly podcast “Explicitly Pro-Life” found on iTunes or YouTube.  A frequent speaker at college campuses like Harvard, Dartmouth, UC-Berkley and media analyst, Kristan’s expertise includes abortion, feminism, disability advocacy, and healthcare, as she navigates the social conditions and public policy that impacts the human rights issue of our day. She does all this while multitasking as a mother of four children, two of whom have cystic fibrosis.  Kristan knows firsthand that all children have value, no matter the perception of their abilities and works daily to be a voice for Millennials and Generation Z who recognize the horrors of abortion for women and their preborn infants.
