Our Political Research Associates partners have released a new edition of their Reproductive Justice Activist Resource Kit (ARK). They launched the new Reproductive Justice ARK at our CLPP conference a few weeks ago. We encourage everyone to take a moment to download this resource for free on their website: http://www.politicalresearch.org
CLPP is delighted to Co-sponor the Center for Popular Economics' (CPE) Summer Institute! The CPE's Summer Institute is a week-long intensive training in economics for activists, educators, media makers, and anyone who wants a better understanding of how the economy works. Their trainings are highly participatory and build on the knowledge and experience of their participants. No background in economics is necessary. The Summer Insitute will take place August 4 - 9, 2013 at Hampshire College. Below is some information from the Center for Popular Economics' website, http://www.populareconomics.org/2013si/ :
This year, the Summer Institute will look at the care economy.
Our CLPP student group has been working tirelessly since January to prepare for the conference. Recently they put together a promotional video for our 2013 conference!
