The National Council of Jewish Women St. Louis is honored to welcome Linda McQuary, MSW, LCSW, Coalition Director of the Missouri Coalition Against Trafficking and Exploitation (CATE), to our January Lunch & Learn. In honor of Human Trafficking Awareness month, Linda will discuss how to prevent and respond to human trafficking during the COVID era and beyond.

Linda McQuary is responsible for the planning, implementing, and evaluation activities associated with CATE. She holds a Master of Social work from St. Louis University. She began her career working to protect child abuse victims in both rural and urban areas of Missouri. Her passion for protecting vulnerable populations transitioned from direct services to a trauma-informed leadership position, building, training, and facilitating multi-disciplinary teams involved in the investigation, prosecution, and service provision of child abuse victims. Most children served by these multi-disciplinary teams experienced sexual abuse, including victims of human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation.

We hope you will join us for this very informative Lunch & Learn on Thursday, January 22, 2022, at 12:00 PM CT.
