Amanda Aubrey on Milwaukee Television

Alumna Amanda Aubrey, '13 was interviewed by the CBS affiliate TV station in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, for a special report on domestic violence victims who struggle with financial abuse amid the pandemic.  View the segment or read the transcript on CBS58.com.

"Legal Action of Wisconsin Attorney Amanda Aubrey said the situation Jane is going through is fairly common, but is often overlooked.

'Financial control is one of the sort of overlooked prongs or aspects of domestic abuse,' said Aubrey.

Aubrey explained abusers will set up bank accounts only they control. They will take their victim’s critical documents including passports, state ID cards, and social security cards. Aubrey said in extreme cases the abuser will destroy the documents.

'It really can seem like there’s no escape, a room with no door,' said Aubrey."
