COMMUNITY CONVERSATION SESSION: What Does Domestic Violence Look Like in Affluent Communities?
Brought to you by the Domestic Violence Network, Prevail and HCLA
Economics and domestic violence intersect primarily through the freedom that financial stability provides and the dependency caused when an abusive partner controls finances. Whether living below the poverty line or miles above it, financial abuse immobilizes a person seeking to leave a relationship.
Domestic violence is often seen as an issue that effects those living in poverty. Yet research shows that people from all economic strata experience abuse and need access to resources. DVN, HCLA, and Prevail are coming together to host a conversation to aid the community in recognizing and responding to domestic violence. We will consider what unique challenges and barriers those of economic means face, and how affluent communities can support their neighbors to seek safety. Domestic violence is too often a hidden issue, and may be even more secretive and taboo in wealthy communities. We will discuss how domestic violence effects the productivity of all our citizens, and the safety of those outside the abusive home as well. Join us for a conversation between local experts, service providers, and community leaders and leave with new information as well as concrete action steps to make your neighborhood safer.
