Membership

We invite you to become a member of the Design Justice Network! We offer both individual and organizational membership.

How to become a Member

To become a member, you (or your organization) must:

  1. Sign on to the Design Justice Network Principles;

  2. Pay sliding scale membership dues, and/or agree to provide equivalent (in-kind or volunteer) services to the Design Justice Network (by joining a Working Group).

Membership Dues

  • Individual membership dues (and/or equivalent in-kind services) are suggested $5-100 per month, sliding scale. We suggest you contribute the equivalent of about 1 hour per month, either money (based on your income) and/or in-kind.

  • Organizational membership dues (and/or equivalent volunteer or in-kind services) are suggested $50-500 per month, sliding scale. We suggest you explore the fees your organization pays for membership in industry associations and contribute the equivalent, either money and/or in-kind.

  • If you or your organization are able to pay more than $500/month for membership, please contact the DJN Steering Committee to discuss.

  • In-kind and volunteer services: to become a member based on in-kind or volunteer services, please sign up for a Working Group (link opens a new document with more information about Working Groups).

New members are currently free to choose whatever amount they feel is best. In the future, we may create a more structured fee table based on income levels, taking local currency values and various factors into account.
