ABOUT OUR PRESENTATION

Domestic and intimate partner abuse can be defined as a pattern of behavior in any relationship that is used to gain or maintain power and control over an intimate partner. A common and often overlooked type of abuse is economic or financial, which is present alongside other types of abuse in 98% of abusive relationships.

This session will explore economic abuse so you know when it’s happening to you or someone you know so they can reclaim financial power and control. In this talk you’ll learn:

– What are the different forms of financial and economic abuse – What can it look like?
– Why it’s important to recognize and acknowledge financial abuse when it’s happening

Join us to learn more about economic abuse so we can empower more women financially.

ABOUT OUR PRESENTER

Cora Lee first dreamt up the concept for Undestructable 16 years ago as she sat in a sewing room while working on her BFA in Apparel Design.

After spending 9 years in the industry, witnessing, experiencing, and fighting racism, sexism, ableism and more, she decided to take a massive leap to follow her true dream of starting a nonprofit. A dream of creating a space where she could bring all her personal and professional lived experiences into one space working with survivors.

Undestructable began as a tiny seed planted in passion for supporting survivors of intimate partner abuse and a dream of sustainability from a post-consumer perspective. What began as a tiny seed has grown and matured into what we now know today.

“There is a systemic belief in our country that all things are disposable. It spans from hard goods to human beings. This needs to change.”

Cora Lee believes that we all have unique journeys that translate into
superpowers. Her superpower lies at the intersectionality of abuse, feminism, creativity, design, and desire to create social and environmental change. She challenges others to step into their authentic self by harnessing the power of their journey and using it for good.

As a survivor and leader, she is always working to help people rediscover their value and define their purpose.
