Student Leaders

Nargis Aslami
Nargis Aslami, a 20-year-old Afghan-American woman, is a rising senior at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. She is majoring in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies while pursuing a certificate in Reproductive Health, Rights, and Justice. Nargis is the Student Group Co-Coordinator for the Civil Liberties and Public Policy Program at Hampshire College, where she facilitates weekly meetings on topics of reproductive justice and helps coordinate CLPP’s annual conference, “From Abortion Rights to Social Justice: Building the Movement for Reproductive Freedom.” She also works as a rape crisis counselor and a medical advocate for survivors of sexual assault. Upon graduating from UMass, Nargis plans to attend law school (and will hopefully start the revolution from within).
Sofía Monterroso
Sofía Monterroso is a senior at Mount Holyoke College, where she is currently working on a double major in Gender Studies and Romance Languages. As a queer Latina feminist with a passion for radical politics, Sofia has found an incredible community within CLPP. She is thrilled to be serving as Student Co-ordinator this year and cannot imagine a better partner to do it with than Nargis. When she's not actively trying to build the movement to reproductive freedom, Sofía likes to collage and scheme for her post-grad entrance into the blogosphere.
