Bold Economic Advocacy
(BEA) Change Project
BEA Change Project is the main project of our Economic Advocacy and Justice (EAJ) Program. We provide:
- Customized Program Assistance;
- Training; and,
- Creative Direction
for economic advocacy work at DV agencies across North Carolina.
What started as a program focused on addressing financial abuse through financial literacy, has grown into a program focused on holistic approaches for improving the economic reality for DV victims and survivors. We are invested in helping DV agencies do equitable economic advocacy projects that support healing justice and are designed to strengthen short- and long- term economic stability for their clients and their communities.
BEA Change Project Parts:
We fund financial education work with the Moving Ahead Through Financial Empowerment grant. Visit the Moving Ahead and Purple Purse website to learn more about finncial abuse and what you can do to protect yourself , access the curriculum, and register for their free and open webinars.
We partner with Center for Survivor Agency and Justice (CSAJ) to provide technical assistance and host advocacy trainings that help build the non-lawyer advocate toolbox for addressing consumer rights issues of DV victims and survivors. Visit CSAJ's consumer right advocacy page to learn more about their work.
