​​​​​​Did you know?
Protections exist throughout the country for survivors, allowing them to take leave or to qualify for unemployment even if they voluntarily leave their jobs because of abuse. Yet, few survivors and employers are aware.

Futures Without Violence and our Center for Policy Action and Leadership will discuss findings from hundreds of conversations with survivors, employers and state agencies on what employment protections for survivors, as well as the gaps in protections still missing today. This event aims to address the economic insecurity faced by survivors of domestic violence, sexual violence, harassment, and stalking in the world of work.

We hope to see you there. Help us build momentum across the country to ensure all survivors are safe at work.

If you require an accommodation or service to fully participate, please contact Nati Guevara-Diaz at as soon as possible prior to the event.
