The New Leadership Networking Initiative (NLNI) is a collaborative network for emerging leaders in the reproductive justice movement. NLNI’s mission is to support, connect and train new leaders who are building a diverse reproductive justice movement. As with other CLPP projects, NLNI takes a broad understanding of reproductive justice that emphasizes the intersections of reproductive rights and other aspects of social justice.

The Summer Leadership Institute (SLI) provides time out from daily on‐the‐job urgencies and offers the opportunity for strategy and project design. SLI further deepens the skills‐building process by engaging current NLNI members and past Institute participants as mentors and presenters. In addition, SLI features intergenerational exchange through “Lifetimes of Activism” sessions in which life‐long activists discuss the strategies, challenges and success of their work.
