Great strides have been made in understanding and combating domestic and sexual violence, but much more needs to be done. In the first half of River to River, Ben Kieffer talks with Karla Miller, who just retired after 22 years as director of the Rape Victim Advocacy Program in Iowa City.

In the second half, Ben talks with Jill June, who after 30 years with the organization, retires from Planned Parenthood of the Heartland this week. Ben asks her to speak to her work, the societal changes she has witnessed over the years, and what is has been like to serve in a position that at times, required the protection of federal marshals.
