Danielle Kluz
Minnesota Alliance On Crime

Please join the Minnesota Alliance on Crime on September 21 and 22, 2017 for two days of strategizing, learning, sharing, and networking to go above and beyond our work in advancing rights and services for crime victims in Minnesota. This year's theme, Above and Beyond: Excellence in Victim Services, reflects MAC's efforts, based on the needs of our membership, to build our members' capacity to reflect best practices and provide comprehensive victim services.

MAC Annual Membership Meeting: Thursday, September 21, 2017, 8:30 am to noon
The Membership Meeting will provide members and allies the opportunity to learn more about the strategic 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 21 and Friday, September 22, 2017
Over a day and a half, participants will hear directly from victims/survivors and experts in the victim services field who will provide critical training on victim rights in Minnesota, a panel discussion discussing advocacy and collaboration, vicarious trauma, and emerging issues in the crime victim services field.

Full agenda coming soon.

Silent Auction
MAC will hold a benefit silent auction on Thursday and Friday, featuring fantastic gifts, travel packages, and more! If you have an item or service you'd like to donate to MAC, please email Bobbi Holtberg at bobbi@mnallianceoncrime.org. The donation deadline is August 31st.
