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.

2008 was an incredible year for RRASC interns! From coast-to-coast and in the Fuyang & Hefei provinces in China, interns crafted and taught workshops, conducted research, designed web content, and built relationships with activists and organizers that will surely outlast their summers.

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.

Last December, 30 international, national and grassroots activists, religious leaders, academics, and journalists gathered for a day-long meeting at the Ford Foundation in New York to explore how a reproductive justice framework can enhance our understanding of and ability to advance abortion rights.
