I co-facilitated with Lorna while talking about national and international campaign successes and drawbacks, focusing on the marriage equality campaign in Ireland and found it easy to collaborate with her. I was also a participant while she facilitated a workshop on counternarratives to hate speech, which was interactive and well run. I found my working experience with her to be rewarding and enjoyable.
