Since its formation in 1981, the Civil Liberties and Public Policy Program has trained students and young people as reproductive rights activists. The program emphasizes connections between reproductive rights to concerns such as economic justice, healthcare reform, racial equality and civil liberties, as well as gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender rights. More information can be found online at: http://clpp.hampshire.edu. The Population and Development Program brings a global perspective to the study and investigation of population and environmental issues and challenges traditional views of over-population and immigration as primary causes of environmental degradation, political instability, and poverty. The program also serves as a monitoring resource for educators, students, journalists, activists, opinion leaders, and policy makers in the U.S. and abroad. http://popdev.hampshire.edu Students available for interviews: Akira Cespedes Perez (787 209 8349).
