In this podcast, we hear from Unique Patterson who discusses his experience as a gun violence survivor who suffered paralysis from the victimization. Joining Unique on the podcast is Dr. Liza Chowdury, Director of the Paterson Healing Collective, a hospital-based violence intervention program (HVIP). Staff of the Paterson Healing Collective connected with Unique while he was in the hospital, recovering from his injuries. In addition to receiving supportive services, Unique also received financial assistance from the state compensation program.
In our first podcast, we hear the powerful personal story of Juanita Batchelor – a mother, grandmother, survivor, advocate, and activist – whose life was changed forever when her son was murdered. Juanita discusses the hurdles crime survivors go through trying to exercise their right to victim compensation; and what can be done to improve victim compensation services.
