"I can say with confidence that the space he can help create is fertile, warming and safe." - Maddie
"Paul - you are such a dynamic facilitator! Thank you for presenting in a non-judgemental way and making the concepts easy to grasp."
"A truly professional facilitator! Paul created a mental health course for the NFU that brought out the very best in every participant. Paul's positive, arts-based, engaging workshop series had us building our health toolbelt. We all came away stronger, invigorated, and with the tools we needed to take on a pandemic. " - Mara Shaw, Executive Director, National Farmers Union
As a settler who is learning of the historical and ongoing violence of colonialism in this area and who works for the creation of a diverse community that benefits all people, I reflect on the following questions to guide my actions:
- What are the obligations to the people who first inhabited this land?
- How do settlers on this land figure out what their responsibilities are?
- How can we be good guests here?
- How can we support existing local struggles?
- And how can we support Indigenous self-determination in the longer term?
Questions and dialogue continued from Fairfield Gonzales Community Association.
