Organizing for Economic Opportunity: Strategies to Improve Economic Opportunities for Sexual and Domestic Violence Prevention

Wednesday, 19 July 2017

What does a living wage or having a supportive workplace have to do with preventing sexual and domestic violence? Referencing the research from the CDC’s technical packages, we will explore how economic opportunity can support stability and address issues like poverty, low incomes, financial stress and gender inequality. We will also look at how workplaces and their organizational policies can support norms that make sexual and domestic violence a workplace issue. Join us for an engaging session with examples of movements and strategies addressing these very things.


  • Identify how protective factors that support economic opportunity can prevent sexual and domestic violence
  • Describe on the ground efforts to strengthen economic supports
  • Identify opportunities to make the case for sexual and domestic violence prevention as a workplace priority
  • Engage in a candid discussion on considerations and challenges in working with employers
