*Groundswell Workshops are Based on a Sliding Scale

Sliding Scale is a tool for building economic justice, and it requires your active participation in choosing a price that you can afford. If a sliding scale is implemented effectively, everyone pays a similar percentage of their income for the same products or services. A wide spectrum across the scale promotes broader accessibility, while ensuring fair compensation to the instructors. Paying according to one's available resources creates a more equitable, diverse and sustainable community we all benefit from.

Consider paying less on the scale if you...

  • are supporting children or have other dependents
  • have significant debt
  • have medical expenses not covered by insurance
  • have tuition/educational expenses
  • receive public assistance
  • have immigration related expenses
  • are a senior citizen

Consider paying more on the scale if you...

  • own the home you live in
  • have investments, retirement accounts, inherited money
  • travel recreationally
  • have access to family money and resources in times of need
  • work part time, by choice
  • have a relatively high degree of earning power due to level of education (or gender and racial privilege, class background, etc.) Even if you are not currently exercising your earning power, we ask you to recognize this as a choice
