Thanks so much for your interest in having me speak with your group! I can customize talks to the needs of your audience, but most talks are 30-45 minutes in length, and I usually spend another 15-30 minutes for Q and A or discussion.
Some potential topics include:
Love Is Stronger than Fear: Rethinking the Conversation About Privilege
How Children’s Books Helped Me Understand Privilege
Every Life Is A Gift: Discovering Our Common Humanity As A Way To Embrace Diverse Identities
What Ineffective Prayer Taught Me About Social Justice
Turning Toward Love: How God’s Love Transforms Us and Heals Our Broken World
Healing the Wounds of Privilege
How My Daughter With Down Syndrome Helped Me See the Problems of Privilege
Read more about each of these topics here.
I am also willing to craft a new talk for your needs, although in this case my fee might be higher based upon greater preparation time needed.
At all speaking engagements, I will work with you to make sure an adequate number of books are available for sale. You will need to purchase books through a local bookstore or work with me to procure books from Speakerbox Events (Speakerbox purchases the books and ships them at no cost to you, but you will need to help anticipate the number of books and have someone on site who is willing to handle sales).
I request reimbursement for travel, meals, and lodging, as well as an honorarium/speaking fee to reflect the time spent in preparation and on site. In general, I request:
$500 for events that include one talk and are less than 150 miles from my home
$1000 for events that include one talk and require significant travel and/or a night away
$2500 for events that include two to three talks or discussions and one night away
$4000 for events that include three or more talks or discussions and two nights away.
I am happy to work out arrangements that make sense for the hosting organization and conform to their policies.

Thank you for considering me as a speaker.
