Sliding Scale Justice Pricing:
I stand for leveraging privilege to support others and offer the cost of attendance on a sliding scale. If you can afford to, please consider paying it forward by paying the $197 Supporter Rate. People who contribute at the top of the sliding scale support my ability to offer scholarship spaces at a cost below the bottom of the sliding scale to those who would otherwise be unable to participate. This allows me to scale the price so that everyone is included. I am committed to cultivating a diversity of voices and life experiences in this workshop & making this accessible to people of all income levels.
The reason the rates are so varied is because I value diversity (true diversity of all kinds) in the room. I want college professors, folk educated on the streets, folx with visible or invisible disabilities, queer folx, straight folk, people who identify across the race, income and gender spectrum… I’ve structured these workshops to be accessible and valued by anyone who desires to have access to this work.
How I value you as a participant in this community has NOTHING to do with what you pay. Your value is limitless; I’ve valued this workshop at $97 due to my time, training, livelihood, etc. There are multiple options for those with different levels of access to financial equity.
* For those with limited financial means who would be unable to attend at the sustainer rate, please choose the community rate. All others please pay at or above the sustainer rate.
One-day Workshop Fee
$197 | Supporter Rate (support others as well as yourself)
$97 | Sustainer Rate (pays for you)
*Anything between $25 and $97 | Sliding Scale Community Rate (low-income discount)
Sliding scales are sticky. And here’s the thing, I trust you to make an assessment about what you have the capacity to pay. If I offer my work for free, people don’t value it and end up limited in my capacity to continue to offer my skills while meeting my own basic needs. This work is a deeply enriching investment in yourself as well as an investment in my livelihood backed by my years of education, training and real-world experience. I want this to be an edge, but not take food off your table or stop you from being able to afford your housing. My suggestion is to take a look at this budget calculator, and see where you have room. Truly. Because I want you to have access to this, and I also have to keep a roof over my head, and food on my table.
