They have been a member of CLPP student group for three years helping to plan the conference's accessibility and hospitality initiatives.

They also enjoy studying feminist and queer theory, disability studies, history, journalism, and affect theory. Saffron was introduced to the concept of reproductive justice at her first CLPP meeting and has been interested in helping all achieve this vision ever since. Their special interests that they make sure to indulge every year at conference include HIV/AIDS activism, southern organizing, prison abolition, and the child welfare system.
