BENEFITING: National Network to End Domestic Violence
EVENT DATE: Oct 20, 2016
Most people think only of physical abuse when they consider domestic violence, yet financial abuse happens in 99% of all domestic violence cases. The number one reason domestic violence survivors stay or return to an abusive relationship is that they don’t have the financial resources to break free. Physical abuse leaves bruises and scars. Financial abuse is an Invisible Weapon that traps victims in abusive relationships.
