More than 150 people gathered at the Marin Art and Garden Center to honor Donna Garske, outgoing executive director of the Center for Domestic Peace, on June 6. The event celebrated Garske’s 44 years of leadership and contributions in ending gender-based violence in Marin County and beyond. In recognition of Garske’s contributions to Center for Domestic Peace, Marin County and the country, the organization’s board of directors established the Donna Garske Social Transformation Legacy Fund to support staff training in social transformation and community prevention work. “Donna’s leadership and vision have successfully brought together individuals from different backgrounds and experiences, united by a common goal to support and empower survivors of domestic violence,” said Tara Peterson, C4DP’s new executive director. “This event served as a reminder of the importance of inclusivity and the impact that can be made when individuals come together to create positive change.”
