    We can add yet another public health crisis to the toll of COVID-19: domestic violence. Mounting data suggests that violence in the home has increased under the conditions created by the coronavirus pandemic—heightened emotional and financial stress, forced togetherness, and isolation from friends and outside family members. The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence reports that 94-99% of domestic violence survivors have also experienced economic abuse, including losing days of paid work, having funds withheld from them, being forced into debt or unemployment, or losing access to safe housing.

    Can you recognize the signs of an abusive relationship?

    On Tuesday, Oct. 6, Consumer Action will host a webinar focusing on domestic violence during a crisis, including how to identify and overcome financial abuse. The webinar will be led by attorney Maclen Stanley, who specializes in pursuing claims of sexual assault, sexual harassment and gender discrimination, and Gretchen Shaw, deputy director of the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

    The webinar will cover:

    • The correlation between crisis and increased incidents of domestic violence
    • Potential factors to explain the increase in domestic violence during COVID-19
    • The impact of domestic violence on the economic and social environment of families
    • COVID's relationship to other family dynamics—child abuse, divorce and elderly neglect
    • Domestic violence prevention and response—options, rights and current dilemmas
    • How to identify economic abuse
    • Why economic abuse matters
    • What to do if you are in an economically abusive relationship
    • How to rebuild credit from coerced debt
    • Resources

    The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has ordered an unprecedented national moratorium on residential evictions to prevent the further spread of COVID-19. The order is effective Sept. 4 through Dec. 31, 2020.

    What does the CDC order mean for consumers? Who does it protect from evictions? Are renters automatically covered under the moratorium? Is it too little, too late?

    Tuesday, Oct. 14, when Consumer Action will host an online question-and-answer session on the CDC’s national moratorium on evictions. The session will be presented by Bridgett Simmons, attorney with the National Housing Law Project. Join the webinar for answers to these and other questions:

    • What documents will renters need to be protected?
    • Are eviction courts required to obey the CDC’s order?
    • Will the CDC’s order take precedence over state or local orders?
    • Does the CDC’s order go far enough?

    Register to participate in this free, 45-minute webinar: Tuesday, Oct. 14, at 10:00 a.m. PDT (11:00 a.m. MDT; 12:00 p.m. CDT; 1:00 p.m. EDT)

    Campus-Based Financial Education in Maryland: A Survey of Postsecondary Institutions (SPIN) was commissioned by The Woodside Foundation, written by Tisa Silver Canady, EdD, MBA and published in partnership with the CASH Campaign of Maryland. Work on the study began in 2018 with a twofold goal to:

    • Identify financial education offerings provided by postsecondary institutions in Maryland and
    • Gauge institutional interest in collaborative opportunities to provide financial education to postsecondary students in Maryland.

    In addition to highlights from a national scan for robust postsecondary financial education programs, the full report provides detailed results of a statewide web scan, an online survey and feedback from individuals representing twelve public four-year institutions, thirteen community colleges and four private institutions within Maryland.

    In January 2020, the scope of work was expanded to focus on two of the recommendations included in the report:

    • Establish a statewide network of postsecondary financial education professionals and
    • Document and disseminate the most robust student financial education programs in the stat
