On Friday morning, President Donald Trump will become the first U.S. president in history to actually address the 47-year-old March For Life in person.

While he’s already appeared at the March video live video in years past, Trump is slated to show up in person this year to speak to rally-goers on the National Mall before the crowd heads up Constitution Ave. to the steps of the Supreme Court. 

Trump also tweeted his support for the March this week, right after declaring Jan. 22 “National Sanctity of Human Life Day.”
 


The March For Life is the world’s largest annual human rights demonstration, clocking in at roughly 500,000 people per year in Washington, D.C. with hundreds of thousands more rallying in cities across the country. Vice President Mike Pence has attended the D.C. event in person for the past two years, while Trump has addressed the crowd via live video from the Rose Garden.

Also slated to speak at this year’s rally are N.J. Rep. Chris Smith, Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise, Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser, Focus on the Family President Jim Daly, McLean Bible Church Pastor David Platt, and abortion survivors Melissa Ohden and Claire Culwell, among others.
