HUMP DAY: Shameless Plug

22 Jun

Sorry if I tricked you into reading a post about sex, and actually plugging a conference thing that I’m working on. But! It is about sex, a little bit. I promise!

For the past couple months, I have been savagely planning a reproductive rights panel for the 2011 Campus Progress National Conference (#cpnc11) and now I am going to tell you all about it! Because it’s going to be awesome!

Fighting for Reproductive Freedom in a Conservative Congress

Recent measures by the 112th Congress attempt to limit access to reproductive health and services. How will these measures affect women and families? What do they mean for access to reproductive services in various communities? The discussion will address the role social media has played and can continue to play in organizing activists and gaining support for reproductive freedom.

YES! Remember when Gwen Moore pwnd the Pence Amendment and defended Planned Parenthood against the anti-choice terrorism that claimed Planned Parenthood was leading the genocide of black babies?



YES. And remember when Jos Truitt called for alternatives to the failing national reproductive rights organizing model?? YES!


Oh! And remember when Campus Progress announced that Kathleen Sebelius, Melissa Harris-Perry, Amy Goodman, Van Jones, Katrina vanden Heuvel, spoken word artists Stacyann Chin and Kelly Zen-Yie, and Slick Willy himself (BILL CLINTON) will also be there?!


Baller. You should apply. Its free.


Here’s Stacyann Chin to provide the perfect outro on Hump Day….two dollars says she’ll be more outrageous this time around.



This post brought to you by Tara, who wants to see you there on July 6 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, DC!

    Tara! I went to the conference (well, at least I was able to make it to day one) and enjoyed it soo much! Thanks for sharing!

    I was wondering, is there any way I can get a video of this panel? I found it really helpful and want to show it to my mother and sister.

    Can you help me here??
