Descripción

Hennepin County's Department of Community Corrections and Rehabilitation is seeking a diverse group of volunteers to fulfill five Victim Impact Panel Speaking opportunities. Victim Impact Panel Volunteers are offered a restorative justice opportunity by allowing victims, and the families of impaired driving; the ability to speak about how the crime impacted them. This healing opportunity will help clients understand the impact of their choices and how to prevent recidivism.


In addition, previous clients no longer on probation may have the opportunity to speak about their offense and the impact it had on victim(s), families, and the community.  


Alternatively, if a volunteer is unable to commit to speaking on a regularly basis, we encourage volunteers to instead share their story via a recorded video that would be used during scheduled Victim Impact Panels sessions for participants to learn from.

Virtual: via Microsoft Teams

Every 3rd Thursday 6:30m – 8:30pm

 

In Person: To be determined as the location, dates and times become available.
