It is incredibly expensive to experience domestic and intimate partner violence, sexual assault, and sexual harassment. The financial impact is often long-lasting. When you are in the position to leave your harm-doer, you are often met with the very real awareness that you cannot financially afford to stay safe. Whether by intentional sabotage of economic opportunities, credit, and financial solvency by harm-doers, or inflexible workplace policies that fail to understand that you bring your whole self to work or properly remedy discrimination in the workplace, a path to achieving financial security and stability is essential for all survivors. This session will lift up resources, strategies, and tools for you to achieve greater economic security.
