We Have an Urgent Financial Need

For the first time since we started ERI, our general fund account is getting critically low, to the point that we are one or two payroll cycles away from draining it unless we can get things turned around. So I’m refocusing a lot more of my energy toward fundraising temporarily to get us out of this crisis. I’d like to ask you to prayerfully consider making a generous one-time or recurring donation to make our work possible.

We’re getting the video/podcast studio (that’s already paid for) set up really soon, and we’re already preparing videos and podcasts to record, as well as putting the finishing touches on the sidewalk counseling course. We’re really well set up to make a bigger impact on the pro-life movement than ever before.

I feel like I did when we first launched. I can see a bright future ahead of us with the projects that only our team is set up to accomplish, but there’s this canyon between us and the other side. We need your help building the bridge to get us there.

If you and/or your spouse wanted to jump on the phone or a video call to ask me any questions about the ministry and where we’re headed, I’d be happy to schedule that. Email me and let me know that you’re interested and it’ll go straight to me.

If you’re ready to financially partner with us now, the donation link and PO box number (if you prefer sending checks) is at https://EqualRightsInstitute.com/Donate.

If you’re a recurring donor, thank you so much! And if you are willing and able to increase your monthly donation, please let me know. We can easily take care of that on our end with our donation software.

God bless you all!

Warmly,

Josh Brahm
President

A Look Back at 2018 and What We’re Doing Next!

This post is to catch you up on the most exciting developments at Equal Rights Institute, where we’re headed next year, and how I’d like you to prayerfully consider partnering with us financially.

It’s been a busy season of speaking at ERI! Last year we gave 36 speeches and seminars all over the country as well as Canada and Denmark, speaking to 3,978 people. That’s a 44% increase in the number of speeches, but to roughly the same number of people we spoke to last year, meaning we spoke at more small events than we did last year, like high school/college clubs and church groups. All in all Tim, Rachel, and I spoke in Maryland, Oregon, Pennsylvania, California, North Carolina, Ohio, Michigan, Arizona, Canada, and Denmark!

Let me share a few stories from the last few months since I’ve already talked a lot about my international trips training the pro-life movement abroad in the first half of this year.
