Anti-Sex Trafficking Advocate

ImageMarch is almost over and we wanted to spotlight at least one more amazing woman who is working hard to better the lives of females. She is a successful author and speaker and is well known in the fight against human trafficking, her name is Christine Caine. Christine faced several challenges when she was young including abuse and abandonment. She overcame those obstacles and shares her story with others as much as she can. Christine is a co-founder of  the A21Campaign, an anti-human trafficking organization geared toward abolishing slavery in the 21st century. Christine and her husband work hard trying to educate the public on human trafficking, preventing trafficking, taking legal action, and providing rehabilitation services to survivors.

Did you know?…

  • The average age of trafficking victims is 12 years old
  • 1-2% of trafficking victims are ever rescued
  • Only 1 in 100,000 European traffickers are ever convicted

About CUS - Alpha Zeta Chapter

Picture In the Spring of 2002 a group of women realized their common want and need for an organization that was something greater than what already existed at Texas Christian University; thus leading to the beginning of a concept that would turn out to have extraordinary outcomes. After many weeks of researching different sororities they came upon Corazones Unidos Siempre Chi Upsilon Sigma National Latin Sorority, Incorporated and upon this discovery the searching ended. The women wanted an organization that embodied sisterhood, education, and community service. This and much more was exemplified by Chi Upsilon Sigma. The two devoted women, Eugenia Redondo and Lisa Marie Cano, established the Alpha Zeta Colony at TCU on Sunday, April 13, 2003. Alpha Zeta Colony received Chapter recognition on April 11, 2005. The women of Alpha Zeta dedicate their efforts to promote the sorority’s motto, “Wisdom through Education” as well as educate the public on social, political, cultural, and educational issues. As Alpha Zeta continues to grow with women who are not content to accept an ordinary life, who are willing to make a difference and who are not afraid to voice their opinion, the Light of CUS will never grow dim.
