Authors' note: Hearing the news of George Tiller’s murder brought all of us here at CLPP and our sister program, PopDev, to work this week with immense sadness and fear. We had many questions about the place of abortion in our communities and movements and felt a drive to step outside the current debate to engage in a new dialogue free from violence and rooted in justice. Over the past two days, we discussed together our own reactions and our responsibilities as members of our local community. Here is our response, originally published in the Daily Hampshire Gazette (June 3, 2009).

I was honored and privileged to moderate a panel of inspiring, incredible, critical, knowledgeable, real live activists from all over the U.S. and abroad.

Last fall, CLPP surveyed several organizations working either regionally or globally in the fields of sexual and reproductive health and rights that, like CLPP, were engaged in new leadership development. Many expressed interest in convening a small group that could share ideas and reflect on our experiences with developing and supporting new leaders and building the movement through leadership development work.
