Thank you for your donations!

We, the ILASSA Conference Organizers, would like to take the time and thank everyone that has made a donation so far! We have raised 27% of our goal in this past week. We want to give special thanks to an anonymous donor who has given us $500! With this donation we have covered the total of the ILASSA Conference Journals. ​We would like to give a special thanks to Jason McGraw who made a contribution of $25, and also to the donor that chose to remain anonymous. Your contributions get us a step closer to producing a conference that allows for the growth of our graduate student Latin Americanist community. 


If you have not done so yet, please consider making your donation today, and sharing this opportunity with your friends and family. Every dollar counts!


Thanks again,


ILASSA Conference Organizers
