The Action Alliance is committed to prioritizing the work and voices of those who have been historically marginalized and oppressed in society and in our movement. As such, we seek to create learning opportunities that are accessible to our diverse membership and allies and are offering a limited amount of scholarships to help cover the cost of registration ($135 for members // $165 for non members) for the 2017 Building Healthy Futures: Linking Public Health & Activism to Prevent Sexual & Intimate Partner Violence Conference to assist those who would not be able to attend otherwise.

To lift up our commitment to becoming an anti-racist organization, scholarships are prioritized for People of Color and Native people. We will also prioritize scholarship funds for people from other historically marginalized and/or oppressed communities. If you would like to be considered for a scholarship, please complete this form and you will be contacted with a discount code to use at our registration site.

**Scholarship applications are due by March 22, 2017. Decisions regarding scholarship applications will be made by April 5, 2017.**

If you have any questions about scholarships or our process, please contact us at 804.377.0335 or email kpritchard@vsdvalliance.org.
