How to Register

Registration for the Collective Power 2024 is on a sliding scale in order to make the conference accessible to all. Our sliding scale model allows us to collectively subsidize the full cost to attend for those who cannot pay the full amount. Please see the list below to learn about our three different sliding scales for students, individuals attending without organizational support, and individuals attending with organizational support.

1. For students

Students are always welcome to attend for free but we welcome them to contribute any amount in order to off-set some of their costs. There are two ways to register for conference as a student:

  • $0 Student Subsidized Rate – For students who wish to attend for free.
  • $5-$100 Student Solidarity Rate – For students who can contribute to conference registration fees.
2. For individuals

For individuals attending Collective Power 2024 without organizational support, we invite you to see the sliding scale guideline for individuals in the following section and and then make your registration selection from the dropdown menu at the bottom.

3. For Individuals with organizational support
  • $370-$500 for individuals attending with organizational support from organizations with operating budgets less than $2M.
  • $501-$1000 for individuals attending with organizational support from organizations with operating budgets greater than $2M.

Sliding Scale Registration for individuals

Registration for the Collective Power 2024 conference is on a sliding scale.  Our sliding scale model allows us to collectively subsidize the full cost to attend for those who cannot pay the full amount.

For individuals without organizational support, in determining where you land on the sliding scale for your registration fee, ask yourself:

  • Do I or my family own assets such as land, real estate, savings accounts, retirement accounts, or depend on other income generating sources, e.g. passive income or tenants?
  • Did I attend private school or obtain an advanced degree(s)?
  • Do I have the ability to obtain healthcare without struggling to figure out how to pay for it?
  • Does my identity and lived experience largely lack the experiences of Indigenous, Black, people of color, and refugees?
  • Do I have U.S. citizenship?
  • Am I able-bodied or mostly able-bodied?
  • Do I travel abroad for leisure?

Based on the number of questions you identify with, we ask you to select a registration tier in the registration drop-down for individuals below.

Please note: This sliding scale is meant to be a guide to help you decide how much to contribute to your registration fee. It is not meant to be prescriptive, definitive, or exhaustive. Our hope is this exercise helps us all practice community care as we work towards collective liberation and reciprocity. If you are having difficulty determining where you fall on the sliding scale or have questions, please get in touch with us at
