Working through its Washington D.C. office, Futures Without Violence seeks to influence public policy aimed at preventing and ending violence in the U.S. and around the world. We want to heal those among us who are traumatized by violence today, and create healthy families and communities free of violence tomorrow.
This September, we’ll be honoring and centering survivors in the workplace, and exploring why economic justice is survivor justice. This month we’ll cover four different topics, with new information and resources coming out each week on Wednesday to include:
- Child Care
- Survivor Leadership in the Workplace
- Trauma Informed Workplaces and Managers
- Sabotage for Survivors in the Workplace
