WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT AORTA

“Our team really benefitted from the anti-oppression training given by AORTA. The members of our team with less exposure to anti-oppression expressed that they found the training engaging and accessible. As facilitators who frequently deliver training through an anti-oppression lens, we gained valuable tools that we have integrated into the work we do at McGill.”
-Tynan Jarrett and Sarah Malik, Equity Educational Advisors, McGill University

“My world opened during my first workshop with AORTA. That day changed my life, and every day, even now—two years later—I am thankful for it.”
-Isaac Hollander McCreery, Oberlin Student Cooperative Association, Oberlin College

“It is a necessary burden to take on these hard conversations in unpoliticized, potentially hostile spaces. I honor AORTA for their work and the fearless yet compassionate intensity with which they do it.”
-Katrina Castillo, Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems (CASFS), UC Santa Cruz
