Registration Cost

Please note: as the conference coordinators, Dr. Colvin and I are painfully aware of the economic disparities members of the Deaf and disabled communities face. We understand these disparities create barriers for inclusion in such events as this. It is beyond troubling. In an effort to fight this barrier, we continue to seek funding and sponsorship from those who support and understand the Disability and Crip Justice work, and we are asking others to learn about it.

Please know that we will continue to do so until the conference has ended.

In the meantime, we are offering Skype submissions for potential presenters who either cannot come to the conference for financial reasons or experience travel restrictions due to the inaccessibility of our transportation system (Alas, another battle to be fought...). The Deaf and Disability Communities are diverse and vibrant we must fight to bring visibility and voice to all!
