Recent quotes from “In Our Own Voice” audience members in Vermont:

It was very well received. This was the highest staff turnout for an activity like this and they were talking about it afterwards, wondering when you could come back
I wanted to share that everyone who attended had great things to say about the presentation, and from what I understand this led to ongoing positive conversations between our residents and staff throughout the rest of the evening.  I would definitely recommend this presentation to anyone who asked!
“Their honesty is amazing & empowering! Thank you! It was excellent!”
