CLPP is proud to be a sponsor for Sakhi for South Asian Women's first Preventing Violence, Promoting Justice conference for social justice leaders!
The conference will take place October 10th and 11th at NYU's Kimmel Center, and will include speakers such as Loretta Ross, Lynn Paltrow, Sujatha Jesudason, and Corrine Sanchez (just to name a few).
CLPP is co-sponsoring this all-day event, and we look forward to the energy and outcomes from this day spent acknowledging genocide.
This 'Columbus Day,' October 10th, join Hampshire College's 'In Solidarity With Immigrants' for a day of workshops, discussion and art surrounding colonialism and its effects on present-day US immigration policy. All workshops take place in Hampshire College's Franklin Patterson Hall from 11am to 4:30pm. The day will culminate in a performance by Rebel Diaz at Food For Thought Books in Amherst! Attend and share here.

Come to our first student group meeting of the year! There will be food and good discussion! We will be talking about future events this fall, conference planning and goals and visions for this year's student group!
We’re your new CLPP Student Group Coordinators, Yasmine El Baggari and Lauren Casey. We hope that all of you are settling into the semester well, and we are writing to introduce ourselves and give you a quick overview of what we are going to be doing throughout this year.
I’m Yasmine, a first year student from Hampshire College. I come all the way from Morocco. Inspired to make a difference in the world, I’m interested in International Relations and Economics and I’m looking forward to being part of the CLPP community this year.
I am excited to be starting a new chapter at Hampshire—as PopDev’s first Reproductive & Environmental Justice Fellow. I will be helping to coordinate Bridging Movements to Build Climate Justice, a national climate justice convening in October, organized by PopDev and allies, as well as working with student interns to develop their political writing skills.
