Time Zone: America/Detroit
Local Time: Wednesday, November 14, 2018 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM



This training is funded by the Michigan Crime Victims Service Commission, through a grant under the Victims of Crime Act. Its contents are solely the responsibility of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official views of the Michigan Crime Victims Service Commission.

Survivors who experience poverty or economic inequity often face significant barriers in access to service and support. An understanding of negative stereotypes, individual choice, and identity-based biases, is essential in recognizing and serving survivors with limited economic means. This training will look at real-world challenges and consider how to advocate for survivors within complex systems and move toward solution-based support.  

This is an introductory level training.  It is designed for advocates who would like to gain foundational knowledge of economic justice in support of survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking.

Objectives - Through this training participants will:

1.Gain or refresh knowledge on intersectionality of survivors facing violence and economic barriers.

2.Gain a basic understanding of definitions and their application in advocacy and understanding poverty.

3.Learn strategies to provide services/resources for survivors with limited economic means.
