The 14th Annual Lecture Series

We are thrilled to invite you to join us FREE OF CHARGE to the 14th annual Lecture Series! This year's series, Genesis: Creating a Safer World, will be offered virtually in order to continue to reduce the spread of COVID-19. We know that one in three Texas women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime, and the goal of our Lecture Series is to reduce this number by spreading awareness regarding the prevalence and impact of abuse. We are eager to begin our discussion on how to promote change within each layer of our community, featuring different speakers at each lecture. We'll see you there!
