Everyone has the right to safety and financial security. Yet, in 99% of domestic violence cases, survivors experience financial abuse undermining this inherent right. Additionally, financial abuse is one of the most powerful methods of keeping a survivor trapped in an abusive relationship (NNEDV, 19).

During this webinar, participants will be able to expand their knowledge regarding the various forms of financial abuse and the disparate impact of financial abuse. In addition, the facilitator will discuss the importance of addressing financial abuse using an economic and racial justice lens to better ensure all victims are safe and have financial security.

At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to (objectives):

  • Define financial abuse and identify the forms of financial abuse.
  • Examine the financial impact of financial abuse.
  • Identify barriers to economic justice, empowerment, and equity.
  • Evaluate best practices and tools relating to economic equity for survivors.
