Director of Advocacy – Mike Schouten
As Director of Advocacy, Mike works closely with the Grassroots Manager to ensure that ARPA educates, equips, and encourages members of Canada’s Reformed churches for political action. Mike also serves as the Director of ARPA’s pro-life initiative, the We Need a Law campaign. The goal of We Need a Law is to mobilize Canadians and persuade our political leaders to pass laws that protect children before birth. His goal for this campaign is to bury the status quo by helping to enact the first pro-life law this country has seen in 25 years. His ultimate goal is for Canada to have full legal protection for all pre-born children.
Aside from this, Mike is regularly featured in Canada’s mainstream media, having been published many times in the National Post, Vancouver Sun, and the Calgary Herald. He also has been interviewed by Sun News, CBC News, CPAC and various radio talk shows across the country. Mike regularly speaks at community events, universities, schools, and churches about abortion and steps that can be taken to promote justice for the pre-born.
Mike lives in British Columbia with his wife Jennifer and their six children.
