On April 5th, 2009, participants at CLPP's annual conference sat down together to close out the weekend, link movements, and create a common vision. No small feat. 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.
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.
In this session activists from the U.S. and abroad talked about organizing for reproductive freedom and social justice. Speakers addressed a range of issues including abortion rights, LGBTQ issues, youth liberation, disability rights, HIV/AIDS, and more. The power of this session came from the individual voices and from the interconnections made between issues and movements. Hear the audio recording here!
The 2007 RRASC interns completed over 10,000 hours of service at their host organizations this summer! Find out what they did at their various organizations around the country.
