CLPP has joined the Women's Global Network for Reproductive Rights (WGNRR) in solidarity with the September 28th Campaign to decriminalize abortion in Latin American and the Caribbean.

On September 28, 2010, WGNRR presented the letter to the embassies and consulates of Brazil, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Ecuador, Chile, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua and Peru in citiies around the world, including Manila, Delhi, Mexico City, the Hague, Copenhagen, London, Toronto, Vancouver, New York, and San Francisco.
We invite friends and allies in our local community and beyond to join us in celebrating the life of George A. Williams. George was not only a CLPP ally who spoke in our annual activist conference in 2008, 2009, and 2010, but he was also a personal friend and mentor to some of our staff.
We remember and celebrate his passion for justice, his creativity, and his seemingly endless energy for creating and building community. On September 2nd, George passed away. We hope you will join us at the community memorial service at 4:30 p.m. on Friday October 15th, at First Churches in downtown Northampton.
