Pilot Report

This webinar features the groundbreaking work of CSAJ’s economic justice pilot sites summarized in the newly-released Building Partnerships for Economic Justice: A Report on Innovative Pilot Projects. Partnerships between domestic violence and consumer rights advocates and attorneys are critical to achieving the joint goals of physical and economic safety for survivors. After conducting a National Needs Assessment of hundreds of consumer rights and domestic violence attorneys and advocates across the nation, CSAJ selected a handful of on-the-ground implementation sites focused upon collaborative approaches to enhance economic and consumer rights for domestic violence and sexual assault survivors. The Pilot Sites included: Texas Council on Family Violence, Indiana Legal Services, and Women’s Resource Center, Scranton, PA.

Leaders in collaborative economic justice work, these Pilot Sites will share the first phase of their ground-breaking work, highlight lessons learned, and offer strategies to scale their work to your organization, community, and state.

You should walk away from this webinar:

• Understanding the importance of partnership building for survivor safety and economic security.

• Equipped with innovative strategies from diverse contexts to enhance economic security for survivors in your own community.

• Motivated to continue discussions in your own agency and with other stakeholders to engage in collaborative economic justice work.

Featuring: Texas Council on Family Violence, Indiana Legal Services, Low Income Taxpayer Clinic, Women’s Resource Center, and University of Denver School of Law, Civil Litigation Clinic
