Because there was no advance notice that we'd be taking requests, please repost and link to this post far and wide so that people know that assistance is possible. I will announce the precise amount after WisCon, but a minimum of $700 will be available to help fans of color attend cons for the next three months, plus two memberships to Renovation and memberships to Think Galacticon (one full, two half-price).
These cons are taking place in July-September and are supporting Con or Bust:
- Renovation, the 2011 WorldCon, August 17-21, Reno, Nevada, USA (donated memberships);
- Readercon, July 14-17, Burlington, Massachusetts, USA (donated money).
- Think Galacticon, July 8-10, Chicago, USA (donated memberships).
Or learn more about Con or Bust generally. And thank you for your help in spreading the word!
