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.
