CLPP is where Tina built her understanding of RJ

Our alums are key players in today’s demand for change, leading frontline fights against racism, oppression, and all forms of injustice.

They are advocates for the most vulnerable in our communities as we all face the greater threat of hate that is legitimized by the current administration.

From academic programs to an activist conference to summer internships, CLPP is educating, inspiring, and training these rising young activists and emerging leaders.

Your generosity is the foundation of their success. Your donation sustains our leadership programs. Your support makes possible life-changing experiences for more than 1,000 people each year.

Meet Tina Oza, one of our 17,000 alums:

Tina Oza smiling. Pink-text quote reads: "CLPP was where I built much of my language and understanding of my reproductive justice framework.  I am grateful for the accessible nature of the conferences and the opportunity to connect with remarkable artists, families, activists, and healers. CLPP program content has inspired much of my meaningful reflection around the impacts of colonialism, health care access, and equity in local/global contexts.  I associate intellectual blossoming and personal discovery with this special program." Underneath, text reads: "Name:  Tina Oza; CLPP Alum: Student Group 2011, Conference Speaker 2011, 2012, and 2013; Now:  I'm a doula and aspiring midwife. My values are based in self determination and personal agency. Recently, I completed a birth apprenticeship under the guidance of Guatemalan/Mayan midwives. I have served as a support group facilitator/doula for young parents in Beverly and Lawrence, MA. I also advocated for LGBQ/T, polyamorous, and immigrant survivors of partner abuse at the Network/La Red and ATASK. Currently, I study Nurse Midwifery at the University of Pennsylvania and assist with research at the Stem Cell/Xenograft Core."

CLPP alums are bending history, striking down injustice, shaking the world. Many of them continue to courageously and tirelessly fight for reproductive justice throughout their careers.

They are strong, smart, and accomplished. They are changing lives. And we need them today, more than ever.

We believe in this future. Join CLPP in creating a cascade of change: Invest in the Tinas of tomorrow.

In hope and solidarity,
