Minnesota Alliance On Crime

Please join the Minnesota Alliance on Crime on September 8 and 9, 2016 for two days of strategizing, learning, sharing, and networking to enhance our work in advancing rights and services for victims of crime in our state.


This year's theme, Core MAC: Core Vision, Core Services, reflects MAC's efforts, based on the needs of our membership, to return to the heart of our work and build our members' capacity to reflect best practices and provide comprehensive victim services.

MAC Annual Membership Meeting: Thursday, September 8, 2016
The Membership Meeting will provide members the opportunity to learn more about the strategic visioning work MAC staff and board are currently engaged in and provide direct feedback that will shape MAC’s initiatives moving forward. Members will also be tasked with ratifying changes to MAC’s bylaws and the presented slate of candidates for the Board of Directors. 

Capacity Building Training: Thursday, September 8 and Friday, September 9, 2016
Over a day and a half, participants will hear directly from victims/survivors and experts in the victim services field who will provide critical information regarding the impact of victimization and the barriers some victims experience  when seeking support and services.  We will also explore promising practices being identified locally and nationally within criminal justice victim services.
