Also represented is the "National Conference in Support of the African National Congress and other Democratic Forces for a New South Africa," held at the Riverside Church in New York City, and her work as a fund raising consultant for Americans for Aristide. Of note are the items relating to the Health Care Now campaign launched (as "Healthcare-We Gotta Have It") in 1992 and revived in 2004. Other materials are from Clement's involvement in various campaigns during her tenure at the United Methodist Women's Division.
