Walter B. Hoye II is both Founder and President of the Issues4Life Foundation, the California Civil Rights Foundation, Founder of the Frederick Douglass Foundation of California, co-founder and Executive Member of the National Black Pro-Life Coalition, a Board Member of The Morning Center (providing free full-service maternity care for women in urban and under-served areas), a published author (Leadership from the IN|SIDE Out), a board member of The Ruth Institute, a full-time pro-life activist, and a leadership consultant.
As a young man, Walter played football at Michigan State University, where he graduated with a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Sociology. He graduated from the United States International University, now Alliant International University, with a Master's degree in Business Administration in 1983.
In 1984, God used the premature birth of his firstborn son (six months, 2.1 pounds) to teach Rev. Hoye that the preborn is a person, a living & breathing human being.
Walter is an ordained Baptist minister. He served as Minister of Christian Education at the St. John Missionary Baptist Church in Oceanside, California, as Assistant to the Pastor and Director of the Youth Department at the Greater Faith Baptist Church in Stockton, California, and as the Executive Elder of the Progressive Missionary Baptist Church of Berkeley. In May of 2010, Walter resigned to work full-time in the Pro-Life movement. He was asked to join a group of pro-life sidewalk counselors, to pray and give out literature to women on their way to the entrance of an abortuary. His ministry blossomed so much that the abortuary lost a great deal of business, and they complained to the Oakland authorities, who literally created a law just to put Rev. Hoye in jail. Though in court Rev. Hoye and his attorney from Life Legal Defense proved both that Walter did absolutely nothing illegal and that the only witness against him blatantly lied, the pro-abortion judge made sure Rev. Hoye unjustly went to jail, which he did. The judge, in fact, sought to sentence Walter to four *years* in jail for standing on a public sidewalk, but could not because of a legal technicality.
Walter leads the Oakland pro-life march. He competes in the San Francisco Marathon and catches an NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB game whenever he can.
