Dallas Unplugged Podcast
Dallas Habitat for Humanity believes that everyone deserves the right to a decent, safe, and affordable place to call home. Dallas Unplugged is our podcast that allows us to connect with each other and reminds us that housing is only one part of creating strong and thriving communities.
About the Host – Joli Robinson
As Vice President of Government Relations and Public Affairs, Joli oversees public policy and serves as a liaison and spokesperson within the community. She spends much of her time at City Hall, promoting affordable housing policy and advancing a wide range of issues from equitable access to land and credit, and neighborhood revitalization. Prior to this role, she successfully, led the Dallas Police Department’s Community Affairs and Youth Outreach and is the current Co-Chair for Dallas Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation.
Joli, a vocal advocate for racial equity in both her volunteer and professional work, is also the first Black woman to head community relations at DPD, an office created in the late 1980s to address decades of poor relationships between Dallas police and communities of color. She implemented and supported multiple outreach efforts and programs with the Office of Community Affairs including LGBTQ+ Liaison initiatives, the UNIDOS – the Latino-Hispanic Program, and Asian-American and African-American Outreach teams.
Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity has worked to provide affordable homeownership opportunities to Dallas residents since 1986. We are dedicated to continuing our mission through financial education, affordable home construction and advocacy.
The Dallas Unplugged podcast serves as a place where community leaders convene to discuss current issues affecting Dallas residents such as the economy, health, safety, education, homeownership, and more. We invite you to join in the conversation.
