Strengthening Access to Economic Supports

Overview

Strengthening Access to Economic Supports

➜ Vea en Español: Facilitando el Acceso a los Beneficios Económicos

As Californians are urged to stay home to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, workers across the state and their families are feeling the impact on their jobs and income, making the need for paid leave, unemployment, and other related benefits more apparent than ever.

These topics are especially important to preventionists and advocates in our movement, whose work to increase survivors’ and communities’ financial stability acts to lower the impact and risk of domestic violence. That’s why we’re working with our partners at the California Work & Family Coalition to increase access to these benefits – especially among immigrants and low-wage earners—through a network of community leaders, coming together to provide access to and advocate for trainings, resources, and benefits that are accessible and timely.
