Name Your Price Memberships

We offer name-your-price memberships so you can set the right monthly recurring cost according to your access to resources. This system uses wealth redistribution to provide access to high-quality movement education and support to everyone!

Our 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 rate 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 presented solely as a guide to help you decide the membership rate that’s best for you. It’s impossible to capture everything, which means you may have specific circumstances that aren’t reflected here. Ultimately, the choice is yours — we’re trying to lower barriers, not put more in your way!
