Digging Deep Into Our Movements: Strategies to Stop Gender-Based Violence Against Chicago’s Low-Wage Workers (Coalition Against Workplace Sexual Violence, Healing to Action & Roosevelt University Policy Research Collaborative)

In 2015, the Coalition Against Workplace Sexual Violence initiated a multistakeholder research study to better understand movement strategies that were developing to address the intersecting inequalities of gender-based violence and economic exploitation experienced by Chicago’s low-wage workers.

“Digging Deep” is the culmination of that study, and analyzes interviews, surveys and focus group discussions with over 20 Chicago-area organizations, including worker centers, rape crisis centers, legal aid agencies, public policy organizations, domestic violence shelters, and arts advocacy organizations.
