Lecture Series Title Graphic

Presented by


At Genesis, we know that domestic violence is not a private issue, as it impacts workplaces, schools and neighborhoods. The Genesis Lecture Series consists of four educational lunch presentations, focused on informing guests on timely topics and arming attendees with the knowledge needed to make a difference within their own families and communities.


  • February 21 - On Sacred Grounds: Addressing Domestic Violence in the Church
  • April 11 - Sexual Violence: Power, Control and the #MeToo Movement
  • October 3 - He Promises to Change, But Can He Really?
  • November 7 - Secondary Trauma: How Your Body Responds to What You See and Hear


The October 3rd Lecture is SOLD OUT.

All sessions will be held at Meadows Museum in Jones Great Hall on the campus of Southern Methodist University. For each session, registration will begin at 11:45 a.m. and the presentation and lunch will start promptly at noon.
