Alveda C. King, Director
2015 has been a very productive year for AAO Director Alveda King and the AAO team. Partnering with many different people and organizations, we’ve been able to reach many individuals and educate, inform, inspire and activate the people regarding the facts about abortion as relates to civil rights, the effects of abortion on individuals, the family, and the community, and finally, the help that is available for healing after abortion.
Alveda’s 92 trips took her to 52 different cities in 21 states and internationally to Windsor, Ontario, Canada. Of those 92 trips, 26 were to 8 cities in Georgia, 14 to Washington, DC, and multiple trips to Alabama (6), Virginia (6), Pennsylvania (5), Texas (4), New York (4), California (4), South Carolina (3), twice each to Iowa, Florida, Indiana, Mississippi, Missouri, and Washington, and once each to Arkansas, New Jersey, North Carolina, Utah, Maine, and Maryland.
In addition to her trips, Alveda made several videos for sponsors for trips that she was unable to travel to due to scheduling conflicts, both internationally, including Jamaica, Barbados, and in the US, Washington, DC, San Antonio, TX, Los Angeles, CA, and Olathe, Kansas. Several videos were also made for the 1MVoices Project.
Alveda also had a wide presence in the airwaves doing over 150 interviews on television, radio, the internet as well as print media doing magazine and newspaper interviews. The scope of interviews covered the gamut from national television like Fox News Channel, Fox Business News, and EWTN, to internet shows on NewsmaxTV, Daystar, and the Dove Network, to the locally broadcast public access show like Patty’s Page. Radio interviews comprised the majority of the interview as Alveda was featured on many well known shows like In the Market with Janet Parshall, The Palin Update with Kevin Scholla, Pete O’Shea Show, The Rick Amato Show, The Herman Cain Show, WallBuilders Live, and a host of others. She was also featured in magazines like Inside the Vatican, Charisma Magazine, Life Beautiful Magazine and a few others.
In addition to her travels and interviews, Alveda issued 61 Press Releases and Media Alerts through Christian Newswire, Christian News Service and email blasts to a friendly media list.
AAO was blessed to journey to Selma, AL for Juneteenth this year. The song PRAY FOR AMERICA was released during this event. AAO strengthened our network with pastors, spiritual warriors and prolife leaders. On August 28, 2015 AAO participated in the Selma March with Glen Beck where we promoted the pro-life message. And as the year comes to a close, AAO is rebranding our message as Civil Rights for the Unborn.
Other projects Alveda worked on in 2015 included a couple of books, BEE YOU and BEDROCK TRUTHS. She also worked on several music projects that included PRAY for AMERICA, Heaven Comes to Me, Let Freedom Ring and Boys On the Street. And finally, Alveda has also been working on a movie trailer for 2 Sons of Thunder with the AD King Foundation.
2015 was very productive and we expect and pray that 2016 will be even more productive.
