Every quarter, Genesis Women's Shelter & Support hosts a guest speaker for the organization's quarterly lecture series featuring timely conversations about issues related to domestic violence. In September 2022, former Dallas City Council Member Jennifer Staubach Gates joined Genesis CEO Jan Langbein to discuss the evolution of the domestic violence (DV) response in the City of Dallas from 1985 to the present, and how the learning from the past several decades has shaped the city's future plans to reduce and prevent DV in the coming years. Recorded live at the event, Ms. Gates covers the topics of gun violence, mass shootings, law enforcement, coordinated community response and more, and provides a preview of what's to come in October to enrich the Dallas response to DV. Also included in this episode is a deeper dive on some of the lecture's topics with Genesis CEO Jan Langbein. This episode presents a valuable learning experience for anyone interested in reducing and preventing DV, as well as for those interested in evidence-based models for city programs against DV.
