Description:
Economic Advocacy is an important part of every advocate’s job.  We know that financial abuse occurs in 98% of all abusive relationships and that establishing economic security for survivors is fundamental to their long-term safety.  Access to economic resources is the most likely predictor of whether a survivor will be able to separate permanently from an abuser.  Such access involves working with survivors to maximize their income, minimize their expenses, and protect their assets.  This training is designed to give all advocates a basic understanding of economic advocacy and provide resources and tools that can be used in your economic advocacy work.


This project was supported The Allstate Foundation.  Established in 1952, The Allstate Foundation is an independent, charitable organization made possible by subsidiaries of The Allstate Corporation (NYSE: ALL). Through partnerships with nonprofit organizations across the country, The Allstate Foundation brings the relationships, reputation and resources of Allstate to support innovative and lasting solutions that enhance people’s well-being and prosperity. With a focus on building financial independence for domestic violence survivors, empowering youth and celebrating the charitable community involvement of Allstate agency owners and employees, The Allstate Foundation works to bring out the good in people’s lives.
