Many donors have given to WATCH for 20 plus years because it is the only organization that appears in court to observe the behavior, demeanor and decisions of all parties in hearings about violence against women and children. WATCH does not advocate for a particular outcome but evaluates whether victims’ and defendants’ rights are being protected and whether all parties are treated with fairness and respect.

What donors say about WATCH:

“What WATCH does is important and unique.”

“Minnesota’s criminal justice system would be significantly poorer without WATCH.”

“We need WATCH. It keeps the justice system honest.”

“WATCH helps protect vulnerable women and children from injustice.”
