40 Years of Collective Power
Collective Power for Reproductive Justice (formerly CLPP) has been engaging young people in reproductive health, rights, and justice activism since 1981. At that time, Ronald Reagan had just been elected, anti-abortion influence was intensifying, and pro-choice activists were struggling with the right-wing backlash against the 1973 Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade. While the reproductive rights and justice movements have seen many wins in the past 40 years, we know that the work continues.
Attacks on reproductive freedom, people of color, LGBTQ communities, immigrants, and other communities have been intensifying and the Covid-19 pandemic has drawn attention to the stark reality that access to health and economic security are considered privileges reserved for few, not basic human rights, in the US in 2021. Join us as we celebrate 40 years of Collective Power for Reproductive Justice, and look towards a more just future.
