Syd says" The first workshop, I participated in with Dayanara (she was facilitating), she blew me away. There was a way she could speak past participants--not necessarily responding to their statements or questions, but responding to what was left unsaid. This is one of her gifts -- to not be swayed by others triggers, reactions, needs to try to control the space. As I watch Dee the first time, I knew what I had to do -- keep working + healing myself so that I too would learn to respond to the unsaid with the grace and unapologetic love that Dee modeled"...

Piper says" There have been so many moments when I've witnessed Dayanara being a powerful stand for healing and justice. She fights tireless to end violence and to empower survivors to reclaim agency over their lives. I've witnessed her hold space for more than 30 women wailing, crying, stomping, circling the room in tears as they release the past and claim healing. I love her, Dee has contributed so much to my life personally and professionally. It has been a gift to know her. Collaborating with her on community healing projects has been a powerful experience.
