This year, Feministing is again partnering with the Civil Liberties and Public Policy Program at Hampshire College for their amazing reproductive justice conference.
We’ll be writing a bit about the conference here in advance, and then two Feministing folks will be there liveblogging from the conference itself. The conference is being held April 8-10, 2011 at Hampshire College in Western Massachusetts.
I can’t say enough good things about this conference. I’ve been attending for the last five years and it’s constantly one of most radical and engaging conferences out there on reproductive justice.
It brings together college students and activists in the field to collaborate, share experiences and build around a vast array of reproductive justice issues.
I constantly meet young people who say that attending this conference radically changed their perspectives.
You should seriously consider attending.
They do have limited funds available for travel/lodging scholarships. Details:
We prioritize using our travel stipend budget to bring people from communities that are directly affected by the issues that we address at the conference. Health care, race and class, LGBTQI+ rights and gender justice, pregnancy and the freedom to parent, disability justice, criminalization and militarization, immigrant and worker rights, youth liberation, and freedom from violence – just to name a few.
The deadline to apply for travel stipends is February 25th. So there isn’t a lot of time. But we are looking to focus our stipend budget on bringing groups so that participants can have the support that they need to fully take advantage of their time at the conference and bring it back to their communities.
