Physical abuse is the type of domestic violence most commonly discussed. But, economic abuse, using finances as a tool of power and control, happens just as frequently. Even though domestic violence affects one in four women in their lifetimes, more than one-third of Americans have never discussed the issue. Domestic violence has to be talked about openly. Join The Allstate Foundation and face domestic violence together with your co-workers, friends and family. The Allstate Foundation believes that we can make a difference in the lives of survivors by breaking the silence and providing the resources to help survivors on their path to financial freedom.
