Panel Discussion on Economic Justice as a Tool for Violence Prevention

January 24, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

As we draw near to the 2023 Legislative Session, the Nevada Coalition to End Domestic and Sexual Violence (NCEDSV) invites you to join the Nevada Economic Justice Workgroup, content experts, and victim-survivors of power-based violence from across the state for an informative panel on economic equity as a tool for violence prevention.

Robust economic opportunities are the foundation for strong and healthy communities contributing to violence prevention. Over the past year, the Nevada Coalition to End Domestic and Sexual Violence (NCEDSV) convened an inclusive statewide Economic Justice Workgroup to address inequities and challenges in order to prevent violence. Knowing that working in silos leads to failure, this workgroup leans into organizational strengths to highlight the intersections of our individual missions to collaboratively address violence caused by economic inequity. This group of untraditional anti-violence and anti-oppression agencies has identified five policy areas Nevadans should focus efforts on to increase economic opportunities as tools for violence prevention:

  • Access to affordable and available mental health providers
  • Increase state revenue to raise public benefit levels and supports
  • Comprehensive, medically accurate sex and health education
  • Access to safe and affordable housing
  • Increasing workplace equity and supports

The panel will feature content experts on all five of NCEDSV’s Economic Justice Workgroup policy priority topics and will discuss the challenges Nevada is currently facing, the impacts on victim-survivors of power-based violence, and the need to prioritize policies related to these issues.
