Annual Collective Power Conference 2022

Collective Power's annual April conference for students and community activists connects young people to reproductive rights organizations and campaigns locally, nationally, and internationally and provides them with information, analysis, and "how-to" organizing to bring back to their own campuses and communities. The conference presents a broad view of the issues and links reproductive rights to civil liberties, LGBTQ rights, environmental justice, peace and security, youth liberation, disability rights, access to health care and child care, and freedom from violence and abuse.

Collective Rising Internship

Collective Power's paid summer internship program places undergraduate students with reproductive rights, health, and justice organizations.

Emerging Leaders Network

The Emerging Leaders Network is a collaborative training and leadership-building network for emerging reproductive justice activists. Emerging Leaders Network members work at a wide range of reproductive rights and social justice groups and, through their participation in the network, create new relationships and collaborations that are energizing and expanding the reproductive rights movement.

Challenging Population Control 

And we’re excited to announce our newest program, Challenging Population Control, formerly Pop Dev at Hampshire College, which envisions a world where reproductive, environmental, and climate justice is liberated from "overpopulation" politics and eugenics thinking.

Student Group

The Collective Power student organizing group consists of activists from the Five Colleges and broader community who want to develop their skills to organize for reproductive and social justice. The group members facilitate Reproductive Justice training for the community and work as the driving force behind the annual activist conference.

Classes and CEL

Collective Power and Challenging Population Control faculty members teach courses that introduce students to a broad range of reproductive rights issues and the history of activism surrounding them. Local students can fulfill high school, college, and university community service and community engagement requirements through involvement with Collective Power.
