In the latest episode of Policy & Advocacy in Action, Marium Durrani, NRCDV's Director of Policy and Tannia Ventura, FreeFrom's Director of Service Provider Engagement & Education, discuss FreeFrom's report entitled: Survivors Know Best: How to Disrupt Intimate Partner Violence During COVID-19 and Beyond.
Survivors of intimate partner violence (IPV) have been acutely impacted by the pandemic.
