Click to Empower, a campaign sponsored by The Allstate Foundation, is giving much needed attention to a form of domestic violence which is not often discussed - economic abuse. Abusers frequently use financial matters to gain and keep control over their partners. Without having economic means of their own, it makes leaving an abusive relationship extremely difficult for victims.
The newly redesigned website includes resources and information about the Economics Abuse Program and the Tell A Gal P.A.L" campaign, dedicated to breaking the taboo against talking about domestic violence.
If you want to support or learn more about Click to Empower you can find them on Facebook, MySpace and YouTube.
