*In an effort to recognize barriers created by systems of oppression we invite those with less financial means to opt into paying a discounted rate between $35-$50. In support of this effort, we also invite those with more economic privilege to consider adding $5-$20 to the base price of attendance. 

When considering whether you might be able to pay more or less than the standard rate, please consider the difference between a financial sacrifice (i.e., difficult but not detrimental) versus a financial hardship (i.e., difficult to fulfill basic needs).

Still not sure how much you should pay? Check out this helpful graphic designed by Alexis J. Cunningfolk. Read more about their thoughts on sliding scale in the post "The Sliding Scale: A Tool of Economic Justice."
