What if employers, anti-violence service providers, community and worker advocates came together to collectively design a comprehensive program to prevent and respond to sexual and domestic violence affecting the workplace?
Join Futures Without Violence (FUTURES) to learn about their innovative initiative, “Low Wage, High Risk,” to prevent and respond to sexual and domestic violence and stalking in industries or workplaces where women are especially vulnerable to violence and exploitation — such as healthcare, agriculture, hospitality and restaurants. Learn about the initiative, the real challenges and opportunities facing such workplaces and their workers, and how FUTURES is working to build up the resiliency of the workplace to freedom from violence.
