Jeff White, Founder

After ten years of inspiring tens of thousands of Americans to join him in the streets to protest abortion through his leadership in Operation Rescue, Jeff White founded Survivors in 1998.  Survivors met the unique need for a prolife youth organization to reach the generation that had suffered the most from the evil of abortion.  Jeff has been arrested almost too many times to count in his emphatic defense of the preborn and continues to be willing to sacrifice his freedom for the lives of the most vulnerable.  Jeff’s life is dedicated to standing up for the preborn and to discipling young people to engage their culture with the message of the sacred value of all human life.  He and his wife Janis have been married for 34 years and are blessed with 11 children and nine grandchildren.

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
— Martin Luther King, Jr.


Cheryl Conrad, Co-Founder/Acting Executive Director

Cheryl has been active in pro-life ministry since 1988 when she faced the truth of her own abortion and dedicated her life to fighting for the preborn.  From working at a pregnancy resource center and opening up her home to women in crisis pregnancies, to organizing and leading local and national pro-life events as she ran the Orange County chapter of Operation Rescue, Cheryl has worked diligently to end abortion.  During the 1990s, Cheryl developed a team that visited every high school in Orange County, California, with the truth of abortion, the pre-cursor to the current Survivors Campus Outreach. Cheryl continues to fulfill the vision of Survivors as she leads the organization, ensuring that an increasing number of young people join the ranks of active voices for the voiceless.

If to be feelingly alive to the sufferings of my fellow-creatures is to be a fanatic, I am one of the most incurable fanatics ever permitted to be at large.
