A Staubach is going to be honored at the Mosaic Family Services’ 7th Annual Gala. No, it’s not Rog or Marianne. It’s their oldest daughter/Dallas City Councilmember Jennifer Staubach Gates, who has carried on the Staubach legacy of community involvement and leadership. Come Thursday, October 20, at The Empire Room, Jennifer will be presented the Champion of Human Rights Award at a dinner co-chaired by Melissa Green and Elizabeth Weathersby with Lana Byrne serving as honorary chair.
The honor is annually given to “individuals and/or groups who strive to ensure the protection of the basic human rights and fundamental freedoms to which all human beings are entitled.”
Jennifer’s efforts with the Domestic Violence Task Force and Public safety Committee have been just a part of her “dedication to making a difference in the lives of Dallas residents, particularly survivors of domestic violence.”
According to Melissa, “Councilmember Jennifer Staubach Gates has been at the forefront of leading efforts in Dallas to raise awareness about family violence. As she continues her work combating this all too prevalent issue, we are pleased to honor her as a Champion of Human Rights. Our work would not be possible without her.”
Jennifer will join a heady group of past recipients including director/filmmaker Libby Spears, fashion designer Abi Ferrin, Judge Robert Canas Jr., Genesis Women’s Shelter Executive Director Jan Langbein, The Family Place Executive Director Paige Flink, Ambassador-At-Large Luis CdeBaca and philanthropist Lauren Embrey.
