  • Excellent article on the need for paid "safe leave" to enable domestic violence victims to escape abuse. The article quotes Legal Momentum Vice President for Government Relations Lisalyn Jacobs, and links to our online State Law Guides.

    "Abusers also often use finances to exert control over their victims. As Lisalyn Jacobs, vice president for government relations at Legal Momentum, put it, 'The ability of the abuser to control the pursestrings is clearly key to the control and abuse.' Paid leave doesn’t cut a victim off from her own steady source of income.
