Join us on May 27th for one of two webinars to learn more about our recently launched National Survivor Financial Security Policy Map and Scorecard.
To disrupt the cycle of IPV in the U.S., we need each and every state to be accountable for this systemic economic justice problem. This means centering survivors and their financial security in all state-level legislation.
We recently launched our groundbreaking National Survivor Financial Security Policy Map and Scorecard to help states do their part. With this accessible tech tool, users can quickly and easily learn more about how the laws in their state are impacting survivors’ ability to build financial security and stay safe, and what changes are necessary to improve support. Join us to learn more about this first of its kind tool.

We look forward to being in community with you all and learning more about how to support survivors financial well-being during the holidays.

IPV is a structural economic issue that demands full community accountability starting with our federal government. Next Thursday October 22nd at 10:30 AM PT, Sonya Passi, our founder & CEO, and Amy Durrence, Director of Systems Change Initiatives, will discuss how the next President and Congress can create a continuum of long-term support and safety for survivors across the U.S.
In this webinar, we’ll discuss:
Ways to expand VAWA to be more responsive to survivors’ needs,
What federal banking protections are necessary to give survivors access to the affordable and protected bank accounts they need to safely build financial security,
How we can amend federal law to provide survivors with meaningful relief for coerced and fraudulent debt, and
Changes to the Family Medical Leave Act that will ensure that every survivor can take time off of work to deal with the consequences of abuse.
