CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The Nueces County District Attorney's office has joined forces with a dozen other agencies to provide resources for those involved with domestic violence.

In addition to the list of speakers, this year's summit will incorporate a teacher student component to show how educators should look for the signs of domestic violence.

The events will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday at the Del Mar West Campus at the Emerging Technologies Center.

Among those speaking will be Judge Inna Klein, who handles the 214th District Court, which has focused solely on domestic violence crimes for the past year.

The Summit on Domestic Violence will educate the public that this type of crime is very different than others.

“It’s really important for us to show the community that domestic violence in particular has multiple facets that some of our other offenses don't have,” Nueces County First Assistant District Attorney Matt Manning said. “And as such, it is so discouraged in our community because these are people that are not able to find safety in their own home.”

It is free.
