Survivors of domestic and sexual violence (DV/SA) experience economic harms that extend far beyond the short term. Abuse creates economic instability and poverty, in turn, creates increased vulnerability to violence, and the economic harms resulting from abuse have long-term collateral consequences. Compounding survivors’ economic harms, current consumer and economic laws, systems, and policies do not adequately respond to survivors’ needs – particularly those on the social margins. In fact, system barriers often thwart the strategic and resilient actions survivors employ to access safety. This is particularly true for those on the social margins.
