WATCH Court Observation

WATCH became part of The Advocates for Human Rights in June 2019. WATCH has been monitoring Hennepin County Courts for more than two decades and has recently added court monitoring in Ramsey and Washington counties. Its established court monitoring of trafficking cases complements The Advocates’ decade of work to combat sex trafficking in Minnesota. 

Without monitoring and accountability, systems fail to protect women. By integrating new and existing volunteers, The Advocates will continue to use court monitoring and documentation to change and implement laws to end violence against women.

Volunteering requires an application, interview, reference checks, and three-hour shadowing. Start volunteering with the application below, and help us make the justice system more responsive to crimes of violence against women and children.
