The Carl Brandon Society runs this thing called Con or Bust which helps fans of color attend conventions they might otherwise not be able to go to, due to financial concerns. This year’s run of Con or Bust is now running.
The basics of it are pretty simple. Con or Bust was created as a response to RaceFail’09 and helped get fans to WisCon who were unable to attend. The fundraising works like this: people auction off things. Things like books or writing a short story just for you or hand-made crafts or whatever people can provide. These things are auctioned off, and the money goes to help people get to cons so voices can be heard.
