Since we didn't get very many women, enbies, or people of color to submit talks, the folks choosing talks for the Decentralisation & Internet Privacy track at FOSSDEM 19 decided that we'd like to ask of you:

If you submitted a talk, go ask an underrepresented minority friend/acquaintance of yours if they'd like to give the talk with you/in your stead.

CC @fosdem, can we get a little boost 💜?

@egrasmed As far as I know, @fosdem doesn't have any travel sponsorship available, right? I know people who would be great speakers for that track but can't afford to travel to Brussels. I'm also not someone who submitted a talk, but I wouldn't be surprised if those who did will have the same challenge.

I don't know the answer about paying for speakers, but I'd be interested in fundraising and personally contributing to get people to Brussels / a place to stay if it's an issue for folks.
