Testimony of Win (formerly Women In Need, Inc.) for the New York City Council Committees on Civil and Human Rights & Women and Gender Equity in Support of Intro 148

Thank you to Chair Williams and Chair Cabán and to the esteemed members of the Committees on Civil and Human Rights and Women and Gender Equity. We are here today to express our strong support for Intro 148, which would amend the definition of “victim of domestic abuse” in the City’s administrative code to include victims of economic abuse and would extend existing protections for domestic violence victims to also include those who have been subjected to economic abuse.
