In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we have partnered with the Lone Star Parity Project to bring you this episode. Lone Star is featuring women working in the field of domestic violence prevention and on this episode of en(gender)ed, our guest is Jennifer Staubach Gates, a Dallas City Council Member representing District 13. First elected in 2013, Councilmember Gates won a new term in the general election on May 6, 2017. In her role as Council Member, she serves as the Chair of the Government Performance and Financial Management Committee and sits on the Public Safety as well as the Arts and Culture and Libraries. She is also the Co-Chair of the Visit Dallas Board of Directors.
We speak with Council Member Gates about her role as the Chair for Dallas the Domestic Violence Task Force, which seeks to create a systemic response to end domestic violence in Dallas and to bridge communication between the Dallas Police Department (DPD), the District Attorney’s office, judges, and community partners. Council Member Gates will also share with us how this collaboration has strengthened the responses to domestic violence for Dallas residents and its plans for improved community coordination.
