OVW Podcast: Patchwork

Patchwork, a podcast from the OVW, offers a glimpse into the implementation of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) at the local, state, tribal, and national levels. Featuring the voices of people combating domestic and sexual violence on the front lines and behind the scenes, Patchwork threads together stories from over 25 years of federally funded efforts to serve victims and hold offenders accountable.

Some Patchwork episodes discuss topics that may be disturbing to some listeners, particularly survivors of violence. Help is always available through the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-656-4673. The National Sexual Assault Hotline (RAINN) can be reached at 1-800-656-4673. Patchwork is available on Apple Podcasts.
