Who We Are
MAC helps the helpers - the advocates throughout Minnesota who provide safety and promote justice on behalf of victims of crime, including: arson, assault, burglary, financial crimes, hate crimes, identity theft, impaired driving, and more.
What We Do
MAC connects systems, service providers, and victims to advance the response for victims of all crime. We are a membership organization of more than crime victim service providers in Minnesota, including prosecution-based victim/witness programs, community advocacy programs, law enforcement agencies, and individuals committed to supporting crime victims. We increase the capacity of advocates in Minnesota to help crime victims through:
- Information and resources
- Public policy and legislative initiatives
- Networking opportunities
