Webinar

Date: August 30, 2019

Time: 4:00 am – 5:30 am ChST

As the pathways between economic security and the prevention of multiple forms of violence become further explored, practitioners and advocates are diving deeper into strategies that strengthen economic supports for families. Join PreventConnect for this web conference where researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will share a case example of preventing intimate partner violence through paid family leave. Advocates in California will describe actions they're taking to increase access to paid leave through a violence prevention lens and a practitioner from Oregon will discuss how the state passed rent stabilization and other housing policies to address increasing state-wide concerns of affordability and better meet the needs of survivors.
