Did you know that April is Financial Literacy Month? Maybe not the most exciting topic, but certainly one of the most important ones.
The purpose of Financial Literacy Month is to highlight the importance of economic and financial education. This is important for all of us, but especially for victims and survivors of domestic violence. As we talked about our “What is Financial Abuse” post, financial abuse is present in over 95% of domestic violence cases, and is the reason why many victims stay in or return to an abusive relationship.
In observance of Financial Literacy Month, we’ll be chatting more about financial literacy and financial abuse. Additionally, our friends at Purple Purse are hosting a week-long flash fundraiser that will run from April 17 through April 24. Be on the lookout for more details, right here 😊
