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.

Lay out the foundations of the link between economic insecurity and violence
Review the landscape of multilevel, survivor centered economic advocacy
Preview the structure of upcoming Consumer Rights Training Toolkits
