Our Keynote – Cristina Barba


Proclaiming the dignity of human life has been a lifelong passion for Cristina. Since her early childhood, she has been involved in the pro-life movement with her family at events such as prayer vigils, life chains, and much more. While attending The Pennsylvania State University, she served as president of Penn State Students for Life organization, leading the efforts to build the culture of life on campus. Upon graduation, Cristina attended the Emmanuel School of Mission in Rome, Italy, which was sponsored by the Pontifical Council of the Laity. She has spent the last decade in full time mission in the pro-life, chastity and new evangelization world.

In July of 2014, Cristina began a new adventure with the founding of The Culture Project International. Her vision in establishing this organization was to restore culture through the experience of virtue. Since its inception, The Culture Project has provided a formative mission program to more than 40 missionaries serving 45 dioceses and empowered over 97,000 students to restore culture by reclaiming sexual integrity and the meaning of life, and thereby inviting our culture to be fully alive.

Ms. Barba received Honorable Mention by Our Sunday Visitor as one of the Inspiring Catholics of 2012. In 2016, she was one of the recipients of the Students for Life of America, Defender of Life Award. JMJ Pregnancy Center is proud to welcome our keynote speaker for our annual Lifting Lives Gala, Cristina Barba.
