WATCH became part of The Advocates for Human Rights in June 2019. WATCH has been monitoring Hennepin County Courts for 30 years 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.
