The Village Griots
The Speaker's Bureau
The Speaker's Bureau is a consortium of Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC), Queer & Trans People of Color (QTPOC), and other marginalized groups (e.g. immigrants, undocumented persons, formerly incarcerated persons, veterans, etc.) who are available to speak about their experiences, give talks, join panels, inform initiatives, etc. They can participate via virtual platforms, and in some circumstances can be available in person.
You can contact the individuals directly to discuss details, availability, and to determine the amount of the honorarium* to be paid to the speaker.
*It is important to normalize paying members of marginalized communities for their time, service, and vital contributions instead of asking them to perform such labor for free.
