Registration & Payment

Note on Coronavirus (March 13, 2020):


All upcoming National Equity Project Institutes have shifted to virtual meetings.

We have made this change given the emerging dynamics regarding coronavirus, including the increase in organizational travel bans and recommendations on limiting community gatherings by public health officials. We are confident that we can host meaningful and impactful virtual experiences, as well as provide a space for learning and community during this time of increasing physical isolation.

Online Registration


Our institutes have a fixed capacity to ensure a deep and impactful experience for participants. They often sell out well in advance.

The quickest and easiest way to pay your registration fee and secure your spot is placing an order online by credit card on Eventbrite. When you pay and register on Eventbrite your registration is guaranteed. Click here for our full listing of upcoming events and to register.

Check or Purchase Order


Registration by credit card on Eventbrite is our preferred method. We are a small (but mighty) organization and processing and collecting check payments for our events has a high administrative impact.

We are also committed to supporting people to navigate structural barriers that can limit them from accessing our events.

If you need to pay by check or purchase order, download and complete this institute registration form and send with check made payable to: National Equity Project, 1720 Broadway, 4th Floor, Oakland, CA 94612.

If you need an invoice generated in order to process payment, download and complete this institute registration form and email to events@nationalequityproject.org and we’ll return an invoice to you.

Please note, your registration is not complete and your seat is not reserved until we receive full payment. You will receive a registration confirmation email when your registration is fully paid and processed.

Cancellations and Transfers
