Join us for a special event on Saturday, January 20th. From 9:00-11:00 am at the Civitas office we will have Carmen R. Guynn from CATE give a presentation on human trafficking. She will talk about what is going on locally and answer questions from students. Check out her amazing bio below!
Carmen R. Guynn is a native of St. Louis and was been a volunteer member of the Coalition Against Trafficking and Exploitation – CATE for eight years. During this time, she participated in many community outreach events, and training awareness throughout the city of St. Louis. After 14 years in the field of civil engineering, Ms. Guynn walked away and began the work of full time advocacy against human trafficking. Now heading CATE, she works with community members, service providers and Missouri attorney General to build resources, best practices, and law implementation to fight this crime. Her goal is to always be the voice for the voiceless.
CATE is a collaborative effort of 60 plus agencies and individuals who have built a community movement to respond to human trafficking through public advocacy, training, and outreach strategies. CATE is a program under the Crime Victim Advocacy Center.
This event is free to all high school students but due to limited space we ask that you R.S.V.P.
