The annual conference—From Abortion Rights to Social Justice: Building the Movement for Reproductive Freedom—will take place Friday, April 11, through Sunday, April 13, 2014.
Having attended in many years past to cover everything from colonization and colonialism to transfeminisms to fashion, I’m really excited to be partnering once again with the amazing activists at Hampshire to help spread the word about this special opportunity.
As you may remember from years past, the conference focuses on broadening the fight for reproductive health and rights by making connections to a diverse range of social issues, including racial, economic, and disability justice; LGBTQ rights; and environmental justice. Over the last 28 years, more than 12,000 people have participated.
This year’s event will feature 80 workshops and more than 160 speakers. Workshops include:
- Fighting for Contraceptive Safety in a Time of Restricted Access;
- The Intersections of Immigrant Rights and Reproductive Justice;
- Repealing the Hyde Amendment: Multi-tiered advocacy and activism as strategy;
and so, so many more! From building support for parents and creating community doula programs, to the intersection of HIV and reproductive justice, to identifying the needs of trans people within the movement, the conference covers a wide range of social justice and reproductive issues.
Later this week we’ll post again on some of the themes covered at the conference, and after the conference we’ll post reflections from actual participants, so even if you can’t be there in person you can still get in on the action. You can also follow along on Twitter using #clpp2014.
Conference registration is offered on a sliding scale, and no one is turned away for lack of funds. For a list of conference speakers and workshops, or to register, click here.
