Sponsored by:



Audience: KCSDV member program advocates and staff only. Bilingual Advocates and Advocates of Color are encouraged to attend.

Training Description

This interactive, in-person training will be an all-day collaborative effort to build advocacy skills around financial empowerment and survivor safety. Advocates will explore their own relationship with personal finances and experiences to develop a better understanding of the financial empowerment curriculum and resources to increase economic advocacy services to survivors.

During this training, participants will:

  • Discuss the connections between financial abuse and long-term safety and autonomy.
  • Identify financial fundamentals.
  • Compare various resources and interactive tools for financial planning and well-being.
  • Apply established financial foundations for long-term planning.
