Description: It may be challenging for many professionals who do not work directly with victims to identify or understand the connections between intimate partner violence and financial fraud and abuse. However, the Center for Financial Security states that financial abuse occurs in 99% of domestic violence cases.
With many victims choosing not to leave because of the financial implications, service providers and professionals must be able to help survivors and victims identify what these tactics look like while providing them with tangible solutions to mitigate risks.
Experts from the National Network to End Domestic Violence, The National Center for Victims of Crime, and the FINRA Investor’s Education Foundation will highlight the intersections of financial fraud, financial abuse, and intimate partner violence, provide attendees with tools to begin these much-needed conversations in their community, as well as offer resources and information to support survivors.
