"Emilia has been able to guide through a process of both learning and reflection. She has challenged us to work through how racism and white supremacy impacts our society, our institutions, and the way we think of ourselves and our world. She has also helped us think about how to become actively anti-racist in our collective work and organizational culture."

"I brought Emilia in to work with a group of teens at a summer camp where I was the Assistant Director. She was able to immediately engage them in thoughtful conversations through intentional activities. Her enthusiasm and confidence was contagious and allowed for us to address some group dynamic challenges head on turning them into strengths."

"Emilia has trained our Jewish Organizing Fellows for the past six years in salary negotiation and building a pluralistic Jewish community. She is a powerful educator, with many Fellows citing her sessions as among the top three most impactful from the entire year. Her direct, open, curious style shows participants that she takes them seriously and is invested in their learning, and her anti-oppression lens and personal stories help the content feel meaningful and relevant to all Fellows. She has great judgment as a facilitator, knowing when to spend more time delving into a topic of interest to the group and when to gracefully move on in her well-structured agendas."
