Lenny Hayes is a gifted speaker with a proven track record of making a difference in the lives of Native people. I have had the privilege of listening to Lenny speak in a variety of contexts. He is a compelling story teller, and uses his own experience to provide credibility to the topics he discusses. There are not many like Lenny - he is a true gem.

October 24, 2016, Sarah was with another company when working with Lenny at Tate Topa Consulting, LLC

Leanne Guy
Founding Executive Director
Southwest Indigenous Women’s Coalition
 
I met Lenny Hayes at a sex trafficking conference in Minnesota in 2014 and I describe our meeting as fate because at the time I was looking for someone to help my coalition, the Southwest Indigenous Women’s Coalition (SWIWC) to be better at including and responding to the LGBT community. Fast forward to 2016 and Lenny is an integral part of SWIWC’s LGBT capacity building team. He has been instrumental in increasing SWIWC’s capacity to offer competent LGBT training and technical assistance to tribal domestic and sexual violence victim service providers. He has served as faculty for our trainings; is a member of our LGBT Advisory Council; and has facilitated round table discussions on LGBT domestic and sexual violence training and technical assistance needs. His commitment, energy, ambition, compassion, and diligence to bring and advocate for the Two-Spirit voice to the movement to end violence in tribal communities is absolutely commendable. He is truly a blessing for SWIWC and no doubt for all of Indian Country.
