Messaging the Connections: Explaining the links between strengthening economic supports and preventing sexual and intimate partner violence

Tuesday, 28 July 2020

Strengthening economic supports and security for women and families is one strategy and approach to preventing not only sexual and intimate partner violence, but also suicide, child abuse and neglect, and adverse childhood experiences. While there is evidence to support these connections, it can be difficult to clearly and succinctly explain how strengthening economic supports and security can lead to preventing violence. In order to effectively prevent violence through implementing economic supports, practitioners need to also identify how systemic racism built current economic systems, and analyze how and which economic supports for violence prevention impact those who are most impacted by violence. Join PreventConnect and guests from Ujima, Inc. and Family Forward North Carolina for a discussion on how messaging these linkages is crucial to gain buy-in and engage partners.
