Additional testimonials from recent clients:
“Sandhya was an example to all of us, first by the compassionate ways of engaging us as well as the creative agenda that made the day move quickly and with ease. We began to dialogue around the most difficult of all topics, anti-racism, and anti-oppression, providing us with a safe space to become vulnerable to what we have been feeling and showing us how to grieve as a result of engaging in the work on these issues. Sandhya helped us move through this suffering and taught us ways to move forward as a community/board/staff and to begin to create a common language around anti-racism/anti-oppression.” —national nonprofit staff member
“Honestly, it was amazing to have a supporter see the work I was trying to push for and help me create boundaries so I was never over-exerting myself in trying to accomplish those DEI goals.” —workshop participant
“Sandhya’s superpower is that they engage with hard issues of racial injustice with full awareness of the harm and trauma that are present, but they do so with a deep, resilient joy that is grounded in faith. In difficult conversations, their presence introduces the possibility of hope and playfulness.” —conference coordinator
“I worked with Sandhya in a setting, not of my own. We were both facilitators of separate workshops. I was so touched by their presentation and knowledge base that I am seeking them to work with my organization in two different settings and occasions. Sandhya was and motivational serious about this work.” —community organizer
“Sandhya Jha rocks. And they got us rocking too.

They helped us hear the music of compassion, justice, and belonging that wants to play more freely in our community; and they got us moving to its beat.” —pastor/nonprofit exec
