The Texas Council on Family Violence (TCFV) is proud to announce the 2014 Economic Justice Summit, taking place Thursday, June 26th and Friday, June 27th, 2014, in El Paso, Texas.  We look forward to gathering Texas Family Violence Program advocates, leaders, and partners from across the state.

Jill Davies, author of Safety Planning with Battered Women and the recently published Second Edition: Domestic Violence Advocacy: Complex Lives/Difficult Choices, will kick-off the Summit. The 2014 Summit will emphasize both economic stability and health promotion, recognizing the deep connections between women’s health (and issues stemming from the violence) and the long-term well-being and safety of survivors and their children. Breakouts will provide information specific to housing and consumer law as well as the health impacts of intimate partner violence and strategies to enhance survivors' access to coverage and preventive health services. Participants will gain concrete tools and information to provide holistic survivor-centered advocacy.

We hope you can join us!

 

REGISTRATION IS FREE!
