These videos were created as part of a National Crime Victims Rights Week Community Awareness Projects NCVRW CAP grant that PADA received under the theme "Engaging the Community, Empowering Victims".  Local survivors, justice system employees, and service providers were invited to participate in filmed interviews addressing the targeted types of crimes outlined above - their experiences, roles, and how they have "engaged the community and empowered victims". The videos  themselves seek to engage the general community in a dialogue about domestic, dating, stalking, and sexual abuse, and empower victims by creating awareness and understanding thus allowing their voices to be heard.
