Stamina for Survivors: 14er

Caitlin & Paul Guerrie


Early on in my years at CU Boulder, Caitlin invited me to participate in something called 'Empathy Week' on campus. At this exhibit, I saw a powerful display of stories and artifacts about human trafficking and learned the sad truth that, because of human trafficking, there are over 4 million slaves in the world today. Eventually, Caitlin and I became connected to Reintegra through friends who created the organization. -Paul

After several years confronting the reality of modern slavery from a “safe” intellectual distance, I met survivors of human trafficking for the first time. Survivors were no longer an anoymous group for me. They had names: Madai, Patty, Mimi, Neli, Karla, Pamela, Nancy, Mixi. These women had dreams and ambitions for a reclaimed future. They were living a new beginning. The issue inevitably became personal for me, as I heard the stories of these women during their visits to Boulder for advocacy work with Reintegra.

Our hearts beat more than ever for Reintegra, literally and figuratively.
