Patchwork, a podcast from the Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women (OVW), offers a glimpse into the implementation of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) at the local, state, tribal, and national levels. How are VAWA grants made? What happens after the grants leave Washington and arrive in communities across the country? Who are the people who benefit from the grants? 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.
