We use a flexible pricing model to allow people to pay a range of prices according to their overall financial position. Our flexible pricing system was inspired by countless Black, Indigenous, and People of Color-led organizations working to undo systemic economic inequity. The chart below is based on the sliding scale programs of Both / & and Embracing Equity.

Determining what to pay
You can use this chart to help decide what the right price is for you. Everyone’s financial situation is informed by the interactions between income, wealth, debt, and varying costs of basic living expenses. Consider where you fall in each of the categories presented to determine your overall financial position.
This chart is offered solely as a guide to help you decide the rate that’s best for you. It’s impossible to capture everything, which means you may have specific circumstances that aren’t reflected here. Please contact us if you cannot afford the “Assisted” rate and we will set a price together.
