"The event with Debby really shed light on parts of US racial history that I and others were not aware of. Even to this day, our D&I department mentions Debby's event and the 21-day challenge." ~ Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research

“Debby’s story of her personal journey is peppered with historical “aha” moments that can’t help but grab your attention. Getting to share her voice with our donor community and staff was seminal to moving each of us further along in our collective journey toward racial justice and equity.”  ~ The Boston Foundation

"Thank you for inspiring us through your thought provoking and informative session. Your talk was the perfect primer for Maine Camps to think more critically about our history as it relates to the Indigenous people of Maine. Thank you also for facilitating a powerful conversation with Claudia Fox Tree and Erick Giles. We have work to do - and the three of you helped set us on the path to move forward. Thank you." ~ Maine Summer Camps
