D. WPC Community Dinner: Join us on Saturday night for our annual dinner and celebration. Everyone is invited and all are welcome. A special cultural performance and/or keynote will directly FOLLOW the dinner.
The Community Dinner provides: an opportunity to celebrate with community and reconfirm our commitment to peace, equity and justice; an opportunity to celebrate the spirit/history of collaboration, cooperation and community-building, and reflect on what sustains all of us through the many challenges of engaging in social justice work; and an opportunity to celebrate the role that creative expression has played/continues to play in working towards liberation. We will have moments of celebration, liberation and silent reflection, followed by some courageous conversations about local, national and global issues. Cost is $40/person or $30/student. Onsite purchase may not be available, as this event typically sells out in advance.
F. Registration Group Discounts: Each registrant MUST complete a registration form. Group discount options: 10-20 people 5%, 21 or more 10%. For groups larger than 50 please contact Eddie Moore, Jr. at firstname.lastname@example.org.
G. Cancellation/Refund policy: Only registrations for which a written cancellation is received by March 31, 2016, are eligible for a full refund. For those exceptional circumstances, 75 percent refunds may be available until April 7, 2016. Absolutely no refunds can be processed after April 7, 2016. Refunds will be mailed within 30 days following WPC 17.
H. Academic Credit: Conference participants, including current high school students, may earn undergraduate or graduate transferable university credit. Course registration and syllabi are available here. NOTE: REGISTRATION for credit is in addition to, and separate from, the conference registration process.
I. We encourage you to donate – $5, $10, or $100 to help fund other participants and students who want to attend the WPC, but who cannot afford it. In 2014, with the support of corporate and individual donors, the WPC awarded more than $15,000 in scholarships. Any amount would be greatly appreciated!
