Inspire Indeed: Stacie Vecchietti- Virginia Anti-Violence Project

Inspire Indeed

Today’s Inspire Indeed was previously recorded at WRIR’s first ever, Local Voices Live. Carol Olson interviewed Stacie Vecchietti, the new Program Director for the Virginia Anti-Violence Project. Stacie talks about the history  and future of the organization, LGBTQ violence, the  LGBTQ warmline, resiliency, and an upcoming  Richmond collaboration entitled NERVE. This interview is followed up by a live recording of The V Word by Jenn Gallienne reading a queer survivor’s piece submitted to the V WORD for Local Voices Live.
