The Kinks, Locks and Twists Conference offers women, gender non-conforming, and trans people of color a unique space to explore the dynamic relationship between the health and well-being of our bodies, communities and ecosystems in both a local and global context.

The first KLT Conference brought women of color in Pittsburgh together to discuss how our pursuit of elusive beauty standards impacted our health and well-being. The politics of Black hair, specifically, served as the compelling access point for women of color to enter conversations about Environmental and Reproductive Justice. Since then, KLT Conference has expanded to explore a broad range of important Environmental Justice issues from environmental racism and fracking in Pennsylvania to toxic hair, makeup and personal products and their relationship to a host of reproductive cancers.

KLT 2017 will feature workshops, skill shares, plenaries, DIY activities, the Black Hair Institute, and health and wellness tutorials.

KLT has consistently provided a unique and vital space for people living on the frontlines of Environmental and Reproductive Justice to collaborate and grow together. We are very excited about what is in store for this year's KLT Conference and we hope you will join us!
