Please read through our accessibility guide and community norms statement.
Please be smoke- and fragrance-free to the extent that you are able to, so that beloved community members with chemical sensitivities can attend the conference.
We believe in offering our conference to everyone, regardless of their ability to pay. Your registration fee goes directly to supporting conference costs. While CLPP is housed at Hampshire, we raise the funds for all CLPP programs and personnel. We also rely on participants to pay as they are able. Please give as generously as you are able, and know that you are welcome here regardless of your ability to pay.

Scented products include shampoos, lotions, styling products, laundry detergent and fabric softeners, "natural" products and essential oils, colognes and perfumes, and air fresheners.
We know that scented products, including essential oils, perfumes, and hair products, can be an important part of one's identity, and we will not be policing anyone's use of them. However, we ask all participants who will be in shared conference spaces over the weekend to recognize how using certain products can create access barriers in those spaces for folks who cannot tolerate exposure to chemicals and fragrance.
Please review some preparations you can make prior to the conference. See also additional online resources by Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha: "Fragrance Free Femme of Colour Realness" and "Making Space Accessible is An Act Of Love for Our Communities".
