Event Description
Join D Magazine for Happy Hour with an Agenda, an opportunity for the community to sit down, have a beer, and talk about the biggest issues facing the city. This month we’re discussing the future of law enforcement and community-police relations in Dallas from the perspective of our three panelists. Sheriff Lupe Valdez, Dallas Police Chief Renee Hall, and Dallas County DA Faith Johnson will discuss, give thoughts, and take questions. Kathy Wise, executive editor of D Magazine, will moderate.
So join us at our office, grab a drink, eat some snacks, and let’s discuss how we can make Dallas a better place.
Meet the panelists:

Sheriff Lupe Valdez was elected Sheriff of Dallas County, Texas, on November 4, 2004, and has been reelected three times. She is the only Hispanic lesbian sheriff in the United States. Her first name is Guadalupe.

Chief U. Renee Hall will be Dallas’ 29th police chief, and the first woman in the position, when she is sworn in. Her career began in Detroit, where she commanded the largest bureau in the Detroit Police Department. The “U” stands for Ulysha.

DA Faith Johnson served as a felony court judge for 17 years before being selected to fill the vacancy left by Susan Hawk. She is the first African-American female to serve as the DA of Dallas County. She is the youngest of 13 children, and her father lived to be 100 years old.
