Con or Bust is pleased to announce that as of this very moment, and through May 31
, fans of color/non-white fans may request assistance to attend SFF cons in July, August, and September 2011.
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.
These cons are taking place in July-September and are supporting Con or Bust:
- Renovation, the 2011 WorldCon, Reno, Nevada, USA, August 17-21 (donated memberships);
- Readercon, Burlington, Massachusetts, USA, July 14-17 (donated money).
