CLPP has been engaging young people in reproductive rights activism since 1981. At that time, Ronald Reagan had just been elected, anti-abortion influence was intensifying, and pro-choice activists were struggling with the right-wing backlash against the 1973 Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade. In those years of political retrenchment, CLPP dedicated itself to working with students and other young constituencies and bringing their energy and ideas into the reproductive rights movement.

Today, we are a growing national organization, and our annual conference, summer internship program, and leadership building projects attract increasing numbers of participants. CLPP continues to mobilize a broad diversity of young people, connect with allies, and support new generations of leadership. As always, we are committed to advancing reproductive rights, freedom, and justice for all people!
