“The conference is a space for people to come together, learn, grow, and transform. It’s a space to envision what a future without reproductive oppression would look like, and how we may get there. The campus is buzzing during the conference weekend, and it’s created by the energy, passion, and motivation that we’re all carrying with us. People leave the conference reenergized and ready to take on the world.”

P.S. CLPP strives to make our programs as accessible as possible. We fund travel, provide meals and childcare, and waive conference fees for about 75% of attendees each year. Our priority is to ensure that more and more people can participate – and together, with your help, we can make that happen.

If CLPP has been a home for you, a place of learning, growth and connection, if your activism has benefitted because of this space – consider making a monthly gift of $5, $10, $25, or $50. Any gift, no matter the size, helps us sustain this work for future generations.
