On April 26, 2018 CSAJ Expert Advisor, Katie VonDeLinde, and Executive Director, Erika Sussman led the first introductory webinar in our new Consumer Rights Training Toolkits series.

There is no safety for survivors without economic security. Economic and physical safety go hand-in-hand, and effective individual advocacy requires organizational support, cross-sector partnerships, and an eye for systems change. The purpose of this webinar is to prepare advocates, attorneys, and programs to engage in multilevel, survivor centered economic advocacy. It will also lay the groundwork for attendees to engage in an upcoming series of Consumer Rights Training Toolkits, a webinar series that is part of CSAJ’s Consumer Rights for Survivors of Domestic & Sexual Violence Initiative.

Faculty engaged webinar attendees in discussion and a case study. Learning objectives include:


Katie VonDeLinde, Adjunct Faculty, Washington University, Brown School of Social Work & CSAJ Expert Advisor

Erika Sussman, Executive Director, Center for Survivor Agency & Justice

Sara Wee, Director of Programs & Research, Center for Survivor Agency & Justice
