Guidebook on Consumer and Economic Civil Legal Advocacy for Survivors
The purpose of this Guidebook is to offer concrete consumer and economic civil legal remedies, as well as nonlegal advocacy strategies, through the lens of survivor centered advocacy that is rooted in the experiences of survivors who are living in poverty. This Guidebook was authored and developed in collaboration with advocates and attorneys across the country who hold unique expertise at the intersection of consumer law, economic advocacy, and domestic violence. Chapters feature a range of consumer and economic civil legal issues, including credit reporting and repair, discriminatory credit, and identity theft, debt collections and defense; navigating student loans, bankruptcy and foreclosure, federal tax advocacy, economic relief in civil protection orders; economic issues in family law; barriers in civil court, rights and protections in housing and employment; and advocacy for survivors with criminal records.
