"AoR, thank you so very much for performing and facilitating at the Division meeting. I am extremely moved by your skits and thought you all did a fabulous job helping our group discuss such huge, important topics. Fighting racism is no an easy job, but I am so grateful we have you at GVSU. Keep doing what you do and know you have allies and friends who are here as support, fighting and educating right alongside you."
     - Amy Joa, GVSU Housing

"This is a great program with a large impact."
      -Jo Ann Wassenaar, Associate Director of the GVSU Women's Center

"Thank you for the amazing experience at the Division of Student Services meeting. I said this already, but it bears repeating. You helped us "feel" the burden of racism and not just view diversity as an intellectual exercise. In order to really make change- this kind of connection is necessary. Thanks for having the courage to get us to that place."
      -Marlene Kowalski-Braun,  Vice Provost of Student Affairs

"What you are doing is unbelievable. I applaud your efforts and thank you for your honesty, conversation and vision. Keep pushing on! Our work here is far from done!"
      - Kassi, Audience Member

"Thank you for making this morning's Division meeting so engaging, inspiring, and challenging. I believe this is a meeting that division members will be talking about for a long time!"
      -Kristen Evans, GVSU Housing

"Thanks so much for the presentation. It was very well done, and a valiant act of bravery by all the participants. I hope that one day we can all be so brave to make this world more peaceful for all."
      -Halim Naeem, Audience Member

"Your skits were interesting, thought-provoking, and impacting for all of us as we strive to improve our skills to become better educators, administrators, and leaders. I appreciate you willingness to share a glimpse of some actual situations that students have encountered at Grand Valley. While I am saddened by the hateful actions of some in our midst, I am moved by the passion that you shared with us. You have encouraged each of us to redouble our efforts to make this a better place for everyone in our community. Again, thank you for educating and inspiring us!"
      -Bart Merkle, Vice Provost for Student Affairs and Dean of Students

" Thank you so much for running the workshop "Theater as Leadership" with Act on Racism at the 2011 R.I.C.E. Conference! The effort you put into acting against racism is very much appreciated by the Asian Student Union."
-Jennifer Spiller, President for Asian Student Union
