Economic abuse and the associated financial challenges present the greatest barriers to escaping an abusive relationship. Domestic violence is the largest cause of homelessness in the United States, and half of those survivors who leave abusive partners fall below the poverty line. Financial abuse is ubiquitous, occurring in 99% of domestic violence cases. Without ways to attain financial self-sufficiency, survivors who seek to leave abusive partners risk homelessness, losing custody of their children, or having to return to the abuser. Legal and programmatic remedies, fortunately, can help survivors build safe lives for themselves and their children, but these remedies are not often known or utilized.

Attendees of the IEFV Economic Justice Conference will be exposed to new innovative resources and practical skillsets featuring tax, credit, tort, entrepreneurship, lending, and other economic solutions for abuse survivors. Speakers include experts from The National Network to End Domestic Violence, FreeFrom, Laura’s House, and Legal Aid offices and domestic violence coalitions around the nation.
