Attendees will walk away:
1) Having discussed the DVCLARO project’s model, partnerships, and work to address debt and homelessness for survivors
2) Equipped with tools and shared strategies to address coerced debt in their programs and communities on multiple levels: issue identification, organizational change/partnership building, or planning systems advocacy
