About the Presenter:
Debbie Fox, MSW, has worked in the domestic and sexual violence movement for over 20 years with a focus on fundraising, organizational development, nonprofit administration, and domestic violence population-specific housing and economic justice programming. Most recently, she shared community leadership in the systems planning and implementation process for the DV system in Portland, Oregon, working with all 13 domestic violence victim service providers to create a coordinated assessment for survivors to access housing, shelter, and eviction prevention and shelter diversion programs.
She has worked extensively on housing and economic justice issues, envisioning Oregon’s first economic empowerment program at Bradley Angle and then creating the statewide Economic Justice program at the Oregon Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence. She co-founded the statewide asset-building initiative with the Individual Development Account (IDA) program, Savings for Survivors, and founded Oregon’s first statewide Aspiring White Allies Committee in 2011, to address programmatic inequities that exist for communities of color accessing domestic and sexual violence services. She received her Bachelor of Social Work from Indiana University and Master of Science in Social Work from the University of Texas with high honors.
