Who should attend?

Anyone can attend. The conference is geared towards representing the perspectives of reproductive justice activists in red states. Whether you are new to the reproductive justice framework or a seasoned professional within the movement, we invite you to join us and share your experiences. The conference is fit for students, academics, activists, non-profit workers, and many more.


I’m not sure I can afford the registration fee, what should I do?

We strive to make the conference affordable and accessible to anyone interested in attending. Registration fees cover the cost of putting on the conference; however, if you have a financial barrier to attending the conference, please complete our scholarship application, and a member of our team will be in touch. We will do our best to work with you to make attending the conference possible.

Conference Safety

The conference organizers have taken several steps to ensure the security of everyone attending our conference. There is a chance that a disruptive presence might gather around the conference site. While we respect the need for folks to react to this sort of thing in their own way, we propose a collective front of refusal to engage any protestors of this conference. It can be argued that reserving our energy for the conference so that we may listen, share, and plan attentively is the most strategic plan. Please reach out to a conference organizer if you feel unsafe or want to bring up concerns at any time.
