gs Sliding Scale


gs is committed to economic justice and to challenging white supremacy, capitalism, ableism, and all systems of oppression in every aspect of our work. As part of that, we have a commitment to making our programs accessible and affordable to poor and working class people and people of color who are on the frontlines of social and environmental justice movements.


We are committed to making sure that money is not a barrier to participation. Click here for more information about the gs sliding scale and course fee structure!
