SALSA 2023 Solidarity Fund
We invited Members to voluntarily contribute an additional solidarity fee, which was exclusively used to facilitate the participation of Indigenous and traditional peoples, and also to cover fee payments of some professional and student members and to help cover the payment of childcare for indigenous and Latin American participants.
Donations were received from (in alphabetical order): Alba Torrents, Beth Conklin, Claudia López, Connie Campbell, Daniela Peluso, Deise Lucy Montardo, Eduardo Ruiz Urpeque, Elena Alvarez, Ellen Basso, Francoise Barbira Freedman, Glenn H Shepard Jr, Harry Walker, Jeremy Campbell , Juan Castrillón, Laura Graham, Laura Zanotti, Laura Rival, Louis Forline, Luisa Elvira Belaunde, Mark Harris, Natasha Andrade, Ofer Gazit, Patience Epps, Patrícia Vieira, Richard Wallace, Roy Oakley, Sidney Alberto Castillo Cárdenas, Silvia Melo Futada, Simon Lobach, Simone Athayde, Soren Hvalkof, Stephen Beckerman, Steve Mount, Suzanne Oakdale, Thomas Moore, Tom Laffay, and 29 other people who preferred to remain anonymous.
The total amount received in voluntary donations was $3,374. Additional donations were received from:

These funds, together with two grants from the Wenner-Gren Foundation ($18,600) and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation ($20,000), gave a total of $50,886, which allowed us to facilitate the participation of 70 people, in different modalities.
