Nellie Gray, Founder of March for Life, Among List of People Trump Plans to Honor in National Garden of American Heroes

Nellie Gray

President Donald Trump plans to honor the pro-life activist who founded the annual March for Life in the National Garden of American Heroes, according to an executive order released Monday.

The president first announced his intention to create the National Garden in a July 3 speech at Mount Rushmore in South Dakota. As he explained at the time, the National Garden would be “a vast outdoor park that would honor the greatest Americans to ever live.”

Trump’s Mount Rushmore speech came on the same day that he authorized the construction of the National Garden via Executive Order 13934. He amended the Executive Order Monday by adding to the list of Americans he intends to honor in the National Garden. The amended list includes several former presidents, civil rights leaders, Founding Fathers, cultural icons and notable religious figures.

Nellie Gray, who founded the annual March for Life, is among the Americans the president intends to honor in the National Garden. Gray also served as president of the March for Life until she died in 2012 at the age of 88.
