Summit Speaker Announcement: LAURA CARPER
We are delighted to announce Laura Carper as a conversation panelist for the 2021 NC Sexual Violence Primary Prevention Summit!
Laura serves as the Rape Prevention Education Coordinator for SAFE of Transylvania. Prior to her current position, her focus was on intervention, working with youth who have experienced trauma. Laura pulls from her background as a high school English teacher, humane educator in animal rescue, and event planner to collaborate with community partners and develop programming that is meant to engage students in meaningful and tough conversations and participate in youth-led progress towards a community of equity and mutual respect. As a part of her prevention work, Laura is a certified trauma-informed yoga teacher and incorporates SEL, mindfulness, meditation, and yoga practices into her programming. She lives in the mountains with her wife and crew of rescue animals.
