Every workshop that I've ever attended by Paula has been engaging, clear, and very educational. I've attended workshops led by Paula where the audiences ranged from people who had never been exposed to anti-oppression thought/work to people who regularly discuss and analyze anti-oppression work. Paula was able to engage everyone with thought-provoking content, making the information accessible for the newbies and still informative and worthwhile for those with more experience. I saw how members of the housing cooperatives left those workshops more motivated to take action. For example, house members were able to think more critically about race after going to workshops led by Paula. Throughout my time in the student housing cooperatives, I eventually rose to leadership positions and began to lead consent and anti-oppression workshops myself. Paula gave me tips on how to lead workshops, and I also took some of what I observed from attending workshops that she'd led. Her experience was incredibly helpful to me even in my own work and I truly believe that my workshops were effective in large part to Paula.
