From Abortion Rights to Social Justice:
Building the Movement for Reproductive Freedom
Sponsored by the Civil Liberties and Public Policy Program and the Population and Development Program
If you are committed to reproductive rights and social justice, this is THE place to be the first weekend in April. For 18 years, people have gathered over this weekend at Hampshire College to unite and rally for reproductive justice. Each year, the conference expands in scope and size and we now expect 500-600 participants and offer over 30 workshops. Conference speakers address reproductive freedom as it relates to a broad range of social justice initiatives including economic justice, healthcare reform, racial equality, peace, freedom from violence, youth liberation, civil liberties, and LGBTQ rights.
Over the weekend, you will have an opportunity to learn and share organizing experiences and strategies, broaden your understanding of reproductive rights, and make the connections with other related movements and issues.
The conference is completely free and open to everyone. Whether you are a long time activist or are new to the movement, there is a place for you here. The conference is intended as a forum for learning and networking for all ages, experiences, and background knowledge.
