What is sliding scale?
You’ll notice some of our offerings are available at different price points.
We put together this ‘sliding scale’ in an effort to undo some of the economic barriers that are built and reinforced by the systemic inequalities in our society which may prevent some individuals from accessing the same opportunities as individuals with more privileges and fewer systemic barriers in their way.
How does a sliding scale work?
We ask folks to consider their own individual situations and pay based on which of the price points makes the most sense for them. If you’re not sure which of the price points makes sense for you, we recommend checking out this helpful infographic created by Alexis J. Cunningfolk.

Super excited for this! I appreciate the sliding scale.
I’m glad you’re excited, we are too! Having a sliding scale was really important for us, in order to increase accessibility. Can’t wait for 2/4!
