Centering Survivors for Transformative Change: Exploring economic supports to prevent sexual and intimate partner violence with FreeFrom
Economic supports are crucial for survivors of intimate partner and sexual violence, but need to be survivor-centered to have the greatest impact in reducing violence. As the field learns more about the power of economic support strategies for prevention, it’s time to examine the practical details of this strategy that uphold the dignity of survivors and communities and promote equity. Join PreventConnect and the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence for a conversation with FreeFrom, a national organization working to advance financial security for intimate partner violence survivors. This web conference will discuss FreeFrom’s three pillars of financial security work, as well as examine economic support policies within organizations and communities and their impacts on preventing violence from occurring.
- Describe the connections between survivor-supportive and survivor-centered economic security and preventing sexual and intimate partner violence
- Identify additional economic support strategies for sexual and intimate partner violence prevention including and beyond those already widely supported in the field
- Discuss opportunities and challenges for our own organizations and the sexual and intimate partner violence movement to support the financial security of those whose labor is critical to serving survivors and preventing violence
