Author and Blogger Dawn Eden Joins Americans United for Life
Washington, DC — Dawn Eden has joined Americans United for Life (AUL) as Senior Fellow, Publications and New Media Outreach. Her focus will be on writing and research to promote AUL’s legal expertise through both traditional media and “new media” outlets.
Dr. Charmaine Yoest, AUL President & CEO commented: “I am very pleased Dawn is joining our team. As a best-selling author and award-winning journalist, she brings a strong set of skills to the AUL team. With her dedication to the pro-life cause, Dawn will be a key part of our efforts to protect human life.”
Miss Eden said: “It is my honor to join the team at AUL, America’s oldest national pro-life organization. AUL is known for its unparalleled expertise across the spectrum of life issues and for its demonstrated success in motivating the grassroots. My goal as Senior Fellow is to expand the organization’s publications and media presence in ways that will increase the public’s recognition and support of not only AUL, but the entire pro-life movement.”
Miss Eden is author of The Thrill of the Chaste (2006), a guide for young adults on being counterculturally virtuous. Now in its eighth printing, the book has been translated into Spanish, Polish, and Chinese.
A graduate of New York University, Miss Eden began her career as a music journalist in New York City. In 2004, she was awarded the Associated Press’ top award for her work as a copy editor and headline writer for the New York Post.
In February 2002, she became a pro-life blogger (The Dawn Patrol), and has since contributed articles on politics and culture to the Wall Street Journal and National Review Online. In addition, she has been featured on NBC’s “Today” and on EWTN, and has spoken throughout North America, England, Ireland, Poland, and Australia.
