About the Training:

JDI and Elizabeth Freeman Center (EFC) have partnered to hold a one-day workshop on addressing the financial impact of domestic violence and sexual assault.  In partnership with JDI, EFC will be offering its groundbreaking financial education curriculum “Money School” to SA and DV advocates throughout the state.  EFC’s curriculum covers income inequality, social assets, retirement, credit repair, income maximization, action planning, and more. 

Attendees will:

  • a)    Become more astute, confident, networked, and in charge of their own financial situations;
  • b)    Build skills, expertise, and capacity to provide financial advocacy that fosters long-term safety and security for those they are serving/working with; and
  • c)    Learn to reframe discussions of financial independence work in ways that disrupt systematic inequality and promote justice-centered approaches.
