A State By State Look at Employment Rights for Survivors of Sexual and Domestic Violence
In one week, we will release a new guide providing a state by state breakdown of current workplace protections for survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking – a critical resource for survivors, advocates and policymakers within every state.
Join us for a virtual webinar convened by Legal Momentum and Futures Without Violence as we discuss the importance of workplace protections and what we learned putting this guide together, one of the few resources of its kind.
During the webinar, we will open with a survivor's story about how lack of access to state employment protections impacted her life and career. With that context, our speakers will present on the legislative history of these laws, how these laws have changed over the past decade, and the future of these laws in state legislatures.
Our speakers include:
- Kiesha Nicole Preston – Policy Advocate and Race and Gender Equality Consultant
- Robin Runge – Robin Runge Consulting
- Lisalyn Jacobs – CEO, Just Solutions, Inc.
- Kate Miceli – Economic Justice Policy Advocate, Futures Without Violence
- Jennifer Becker– Legal Director, Legal Momentum
- Seher Khawaja – Senior Attorney for Economic Empowerment, Legal Momentum
We hope you can join us. Please reach out to Kate Miceli at KMiceli@futureswithoutviolence.org or Claire Kao at CKao@futureswithoutviolence.org with any questions or accessibility requests.
