Help us launch the new travel assistance fund for philosophers of color

At its meeting in November, the APA board of officers
approved a proposal from the task force on diversity and inclusion to create a
travel assistance fund for philosophers of color.
The fund will subsidize travel for philosophers of color who
would otherwise find it challenging to participate in APA divisional meetings
and other APA-sponsored conferences. The fund is supported exclusively by
Donate to the new
APA Travel Assistance Fund for Philosophers of Color!
To help get the new fund off the ground, APA member Janice
Dowell and the Marc Sanders Foundation have issued a challenge. Professor
Dowell, the winner of the 2014 Sanders Prize in Metaethics, has pledged $1,000
of her prize money to the travel assistance fund, and the Marc Sanders
Foundation has committed another $2,000 to it—but
only if the APA raises $5,000 in additional donations for the travel assistance
fund by April 10.
We need your help to launch this important travel assistance
fund and meet our challenge goal. Please give
generously before April 10 and make your dollars go even further. Any
amount is deeply appreciated and will go a long way to support diversity in
