Economic Advocacy IS DV Advocacy IS Economic Advocacy: Learning About and Learning From Trans Economic Empowerment Programs
Provided by: The National LGBTQ Institute on IPV
 
Date: August 7, 2019
 
Time: 5:00 am – 6:30 am ChST

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.

A Trauma-Informed Care Approach to Healthcare Providers' Interactions with Families and Friends of Homicide Victims
Provided by: Center for Victim Research

Date: August 23, 2019

Time: 4:00 am – 5:00 am ChST

The presenters will discuss findings from their research with families and friends of homicide victims (FFHV) which focused on interactions with the healthcare system and healthcare providers in the aftermath of a loved one's homicide.  The research team held focus groups with FFHV and coded the qualitative data using the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's "Guiding Principles of Trauma-Informed Care" framework (2014).  In addition to the existing framework, several other themes emerged from the analysis.  We will discuss the findings, suggestions for healthcare providers' interactions with patients who are FFHV, and the next steps for this project.  The presentation will conclude with a discussion about the benefits of working with an interdisciplinary research team of practitioners and researchers.

Building Sustainable Partnerships Between Human Trafficking Services and Workforce Development Programs
Provided by: Futures Without Violence

Date: August 29, 2019

Time: 4:00 am – 5:30 am ChST

Partnerships between organizations serving human trafficking survivors and workforce development programs can improve survivors' access to a range of high-quality education and employment opportunities. Building cross-sector partnerships to seamlessly and effectively enhance client services can be challenging when programs have different goals and methods of service delivery. For example, education and job training programs may not be grounded in trauma informed practices; victim service programs may not be aware of the outcome requirements education and job training programs must meet to remain accredited. This webinar will focus overcoming common challenges when building cross-sector collaborations between victim service providers and workforce development programs to help foster a strong foundation that mutually benefits collaborating agencies and survivors of human trafficking.

Latest Updates on the Impact of the Public Charge Rule on Immigrant Survivors of DV/SA
Provided by: Asian Pacific Institute on Gender-Based Violence

Date: August 30, 2019

Time: 6:00 am – 7:30 am ChST

The DHS rule on the public charge ground of inadmissibility has been released and will be formally published on Wednesday, August 14, 2019. If litigation does not prevent the rule from taking effect, the policy will become effective on October 15. As noted by Tahirih Justice Center, an initial review shows that the published rule will penalize immigrant survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault who are subject to the public charge bar to admissibility, who use public benefits such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Medicaid, or subsidized housing programs. This informational webinar will provide up-to-date analysis on the impact of the public charge inadmissibility rule on immigrant survivors.
