This page is a record of the crowdsourcing campaign we ran to help raise funds for the conference. Our volunteer organizing team was dedicated to making this digital conference as inclusive and accessible as possible. The conference had no sponsors; as organizers we were a group of friends and colleagues who feel this is an important conversation to have, one we had not seen happening anywhere else.
Access to the conference content was free, via our website, with no registration required. In order to cover conference expenses we requested donations, with suggested donations of $5-10 per event or $75-100 for the entire conference series. We raised approximately 6000 USD, of which approximately $4000 went towards speaker honorariums and the rest to small honorariums for captioners and small fees for maintaining the website and other logistical expenses for the conference.
