ConFusion Improvements to Accessibility


2017 will mark a new era for ConFusion. It will be the first time ConFusion will ask it’s panelists and presenters to contribute to the funds that run ConFusion. This decision comes as a direct result of growing accessibility needs of the fannish community. ConFusion is very proud of its current accessibility policy, but knows that the current offerings are lacking for the greater community. Unfortunatly for a small non-profit convention, the cost of some basic accessibility needs is daunting.  ConFusion is dedicated to providing a space for everyone, regardless of able-ness.
