From Paid Leave to Rent Stabilization: Research and practice on strengthening economic security for violence prevention


As the pathways between economic security and the prevention of multiple forms of violence become further explored, practitioners and advocates are diving deeper into strategies that strengthen economic supports for families. Join us for this web conference where researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will share a case example of preventing intimate partner violence through paid family leave. Advocates in California will describe actions they’re taking to increase access to paid leave through a violence prevention lens and a practitioner from Oregon will discuss how the state passed rent stabilization and other housing policies to address increasing state-wide concerns of affordability and better meet the needs of survivors.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Describe the connections between family and community economic insecurity and multiple forms of violence with a focus on paid leave for intimate partner violence prevention.
  • Highlight strategies that communities are operationalizing for prevention.
  • Identify roles that the field of sexual and domestic violence prevention can play in strengthening economic supports for families.
  • Engage in a candid discussion on economic supports for prevention.
