Economic Justice Summit
Research estimates the economic costs of intimate partner violence at nearly $3.6 trillion at a population level and $3.1 trillion for sexual violence. Economic instability increases the likelihood that these forms of violence will occur and impacts our workplaces, neighborhoods, and economy. However, through the promotion of equitable policies by corporations and government, we can help alleviate economic instability and decrease these numbers. The Biden Institute and the Center for the Study and Prevention of Gender-Based Violence at the University of Delaware have partnered with the Delaware Coalition Against Domestic Violence to present Economic Justice Through Social Responsibility, a virtual summit dedicated to learning how strengthening our economy for all is vital to preventing gender-based violence and creating safe communities and a thriving economy. Participants will hear from national and local experts, and will join in the conversation to share ideas on ways to bring about economic justice through policies, practices, and community connections. Please join us to learn more about how we can build a healthier economy through social responsibility. This critical work can help prevent sexual and domestic violence by creating healthy economies and communities, ensuring supportive workplaces, and working to remove barriers which prevent individuals from controlling their own destinies.
