We at CLPP are celebrating our 30th anniversary. Who do I mean by "we"? I mean you, me, and everyone else who has moved in, out, and through CLPP and PopDev programs.
CLPP has been going strong for the past 30 years and continues onward, inspiring and training young activists like myself. My name is Anna, I am currently a third-year Hampshire student and dedicated member of the CLPP community. Since my first semester at Hampshire I have been involved with CLPP, both as a member of the CLPP student group and as a CLPP work-study intern.
I’m Courtney, one of the student blog coordinators for our 30th Anniversary blog: 1981 to Tomorrow: Building the Movement for Reproductive Freedom. CLPP has been a part of many people’s lives in many different ways. Whether you postered around the area to advertise student group meetings or co-chaired an organizing committee in the student group, led a workshop, attended a workshop or a plenary at the CLPP conference, took a class with Marlene Gerber Fried or Betsy Hartmann or spoke as a guest at a CLPP class, we invite you to share your memories. We welcome all types of connection with CLPP. Don’t be shy! All of our individual experiences tell a larger, collective tale.

RH Reality Check's "Fighting for Justice in 2010: Heros and Heroines We Admire" is a list compiled of those people who have worked to promote sexual and reproductive justice, environmental justice, women's human right and the rights of LGBT persons.
The list is intended to be a compilation of recognized people who were nominated by their colleagues and friends.

Several recent news stories have raised issues involving disability and reproductive decision-making in a rather negative way. A small group of people, who identify with both the reproductive rights and the disability rights movements, have drafted a statement in response to these developments.
It is a brief statement that aims to inject a different perspective into the conversation. While the inspiration came from two recent news events, this was an opportunity to re-affirm a reproductive rights/disability rights alliance so that each movement is not used to undermine the other.
For background on the two negative recent news events visit:
