2. & 3.  Christine Castillo and Catelin Quinn talk about their paths leading them to work at Verity, helping female and male victims of abuse.  Christine has worked for the organization when it was called United Against Sexual Assault and led a rebranding and focus on the mission of Verity working in cooperation with the community:  Verity facilitates healing and promotes the prevention of violence by providing counseling, advocacy, intervention, and education in our community. Caetlin joined Verity and speaks with the passion of a “Me, too” Wounded Healer, as she shares her story of abuse at Sonoma State University, where this abuser of multipler women students was shielded by the Professors and Administration and allowed to graduate with enough recommendations to enter Harvard Law School. The Verity 24×7 Crisis Hotline and counseling are strictly confidential.  Since those younger than 18 years old are in guardianship and the law mandates reporting, Verity first informs the youth not to give any identifiers before counseling them.on the phone and lets clients know if a next step would require breaking the confidentiality to allow free choice in the decision.

About our Guest: Christine Castillo is the Executive Director for Verity earned her Bachelor’s Degree in psychology from Sonoma State University, with external work for her Master’s Degree in psychology. Chris has over 35 years of experience with nonprofit organizations in Sonoma County, working with diverse populations and cultures. She is committed to eliminating myths and stereotypes surrounding sexual assault and bringing our community together to become better informed, educated and able to speak out against sexual abuse. Chris will continue to pursue her passion for community collaboration.

About our Guest: Catelin Quinn is the communications coordinator: for Verity. She graduated from the University of California, Berkeley, in 2015, where she earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science and a minor in public policy. While studying at Cal, she was involved with the student organizing, government affairs, and nonprofit work for a variety of progressive causes in the Bay Area and Washington, D.C. After a year of getting reacquainted with what Sonoma County has to offer, Caitlin decided she wanted to do meaningful work in the community where she grew up, and joined the Verity team in July 2016.
