Economic vulnerability increases vulnerability to domestic violence; and experiencing domestic violence is frequently impoverishing. This is true for all survivors of domestic violence. However, transgender people, especially trans people of color, face pervasive discrimination in education, employment and housing along with unacceptable rates of intimate partner violence. 
 
Trans-centered projects are demonstrating how and why legal advocacy aimed at economic empowerment and educational access are critical components of DV Advocacy. 
 
Legal advocacy can and should go beyond protection orders: Some survivors need help resolving warrants, aligning identification documents and clearing nuisance charges before they can move forward. We will connect the dots between transphobia, trans people's experiences of IPV, and why advocacy aimed at economic and educational empowerment is so critical for this population when we think about DV advocacy.
