Genesis Women's Shelter & Support offers domestic violence services to everyone who identifies as a woman. To improve access to services for all intimate partner violence survivors in need of safety, shelter & support, Genesis The Podcast is launching a Pride Month Podcast Series focused on intimate partner violence (IPV) in LGBTQIA+ relationships.
Each episode in this series is a dialogue with survivors and/or experts highlighting the needs and issues of IPV survivors in the LGBTQIA+ community as well as possible solutions for improved responses to their experiences. Our hope is that this dialogue will grow into new collaborations across communities that expand our understanding of IPV, reduce its prevalence, and provide more equitable responses and services for all survivors of IPV in LGBTQIA+ relationships. Media consultant Ron Corning joins the conversation as co-host and interviewer for the series, offering critical insights into IPV among LGBTQIA+ partners.
Solutions specific to IPV in LGBTQIA+ relationships can be challenging to resource. We've gathered experts in the fields of law enforcement, clinical services, advocacy and more to evaluate what solutions exist, the effort to include all people in those solutions and improve responses to IPV for people who identify as LGBTQIA+. Ron Corning talks with Genesis CEO Jan Langbein and senior director of residential services Jordyn Lawson to understand responses within the domestic violence movement. Maria MacMullin expands on these ideas with presenters from the 2022 Conference on Crimes Against Women who offer diverse approaches to navigating IPV across LGBTQIA+ relationships. Guests include: Sarah Berlanga of The Women's Center, Kimberly Crawford of the DC Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Michael Crumrine sergeant with the Austin Texas Police Department, and Patrick Moug of the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office, Detroit.
