In this episode, we are shining a spotlight on a crucial issue as we recognize October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month. It’s a time to raise our voices and stand together against all forms of domestic violence, including one of the most insidious yet often overlooked aspects: financial abuse.
Join us as we delve into the shadows of domestic abuse and one of its forms, financial abuse. We start by unpacking the fundamental question: What is Financial Abuse? By definition financial abuse is the use of a person’s money or finances without their knowledge or consent in order to gain power and control over them. This type of abuse is a less commonly understood form of domestic abuse. We believe in the power of knowledge, awareness, and community support to make a difference.
So, whether you’re tuning in to learn more about financial abuse, seeking help for yourself or someone you care about, or simply standing in solidarity with survivors, this episode is for you. Together, let’s break the cycle of abuse and create a safer, more empowered future for all.”
