The Georgia Commission on Family Violence (GCFV) presented its “Task Force Member of the Year Award,” to Annie Davis from the Domestic Violence Roundtable, Inc. (DVR) in Columbus, during the Commission’s 27th Annual Family Violence Conference. 

The Task Force Member of the Year Award is presented to the family violence task force member who has taken extraordinary strides to better protect victims and hold abusers accountable. Family violence task forces are multidisciplinary community groups (government agencies, community-based agencies, survivors of family violence, concerned community members and professionals) whose focus is on increasing victim safety and offender accountability through coordinating local services and effecting change through creating a coordinated community response to domestic violence. 

DVR Task Force member Gwendolyn McIntosh states, “Mrs.Davis has demonstrated excellence in working as Chairperson to the Domestic Violence Roundtable. She is highly motivated and has stepped up as a chairperson ensuring  educational and outreach programs are held. She works closely with other Domestic Violence Roundtable members to ensure our vision and mission is met.”

GCFV Family Violence Coordinator Stacey Seldon said, “Mrs. Davis has been a tireless and devoted leader, and has consistently demonstrated her admirable commitment to survivors of domestic violence and the Task Force.”

The Commission’s 27th annual family violence conference was held virtually on November 8-10, 2021. The theme of this year’s conference was “Moving Forward, Achieving Justice”. More than 600 local and national stakeholders attended the virtual conference, including judges, prosecutors, law enforcement, advocates, survivors, faith leaders, counselors and community members.
