As part of our conference last month, the Youth Action Coalition (YAC) led a zine-making workshop called "Unpacking Oppression: Youth Liberation Through Media." The goal of this hands-on workshop was to tackle issues faced by youth through art. Youth leaders from YAC facilitated by sharing their skills and beliefs as well as documenting the workshop, and participants created an original zine.

On April 28, 2012, activists and advocates from Minnesota, the Midwest, and (a few of us) from across the U.S. met up at Carleton College for their Reproductive Justice Collective's first conference, "Sex, Lies, and Things our Mothers Never Told Us: How Reproductive Justice Fits into Every Aspect of Our Society." We spent the day together, in a building that formerly housed Northfield's middle school, and talked human rights, sexualities and native communities, supreme court cases, and art as activism.

During Friday afternoon at the conference this year, CLPP partnered with the Care Center to produce activist portraits. The Care Center is an alternative education center for pregnant and parenting teens in Holyoke, MA. The ladies from the Care Center took pictures of participants and their collages, which will be displayed at a gallery exhibit on May 18th.

All of us at CLPP and PopDev are so glad to take this moment to express our extreme gratitude for being a part of the Hampshire College community. On April 13-15, over 1,100 activists from across the U.S. and the world joined us on our campus to build a stronger movement for reproductive and social justice. And we couldn't have convened such a hugely successful event without the support and generosity of the entire Hampshire College community. For this, we thank you!
