Through the leadership of coalitions like the California Partnership to End Domestic Violence (the Partnership) and the California Work and Family Coalition, momentum is already building to promote economic security in support of safe relationships. With that, there is a need to better understand the connections between economic security and partner violence and learn from communities implementing strategies to improve economic security and decrease violence. This brief unpacks these connections and illustrates examples of actions across Prevention Institute’s Spectrum of Prevention. Practitioners in the fields of partner violence prevention, economic development, and other related sectors can use this as a tool to explore opportunities to collaborate with one another and add both effectiveness and efficiency to their work.
