No money? No problem! We’ll pre-game this conference with skill-shares via Google Hangouts of how you can raise
the money to get you to the conference, even if this would normally be beyond your means. Working class perspectives are a huge asset to the conference! We can work together to make this happen- if you’re committed to the cause, where there’s a will there’s
a way. We do offer limited need-based travel scholarships- just apply here and we’ll work together from there.
