Travel Stipends Available for CLPP Conference!

Attention activists: Travel and hotel stipends are available for the annual Civil Liberties and Public Policy conference, "From Abortion Rights to Social Justice: Building the Movement for Reproductive Freedom," April 9-11, 2010 at Hampshire College, Amherst MA!

On April 9-11, 2010, campus and community activists will gather at Hampshire College to unite for reproductive justice. We offer more than 40 workshops and trainings. Conference speakers address reproductive freedom as it relates to a broad range of social justice initiatives including economic justice, health care reform, racial equality, freedom from violence, immigrant rights, climate justice, and LGBTQ rights, just to name a few.

Stipend priority will be given to people who:
-Would not be able to attend otherwise.
-Are from communities that are often pushed to the margins and/or who encounter barriers to working in the reproductive rights movement.
-Are first time participants.
We strive for as large a diversity of travel stipend recipients as possible.

Applications are due February 24th, 2010. Please visit our website for applications and general information. Contact Ellen Gattozzi, CLPP Program Assistant,, 413-559-6976 with any questions.
