OUR ACTIVITIES

CourtWatch is a group of local citizens interested in court proceedings related to  domestic violence cases. Formed in 2002, its official mission is "to influence court practices to increasingly conform to the Illinois Domestic Violence Act, to promote victims' safety and abuser accountability and to create a more informed and involved public."

 

Members attend court once or twice per month to observe the proceedings and to evaluate whether victims of domestic violence are treated fairly in court.

 

Monthly meetings feature speakers who educate members about community affairs ranging from policing to mental health.  Our membership has found these meetings to be quite rewarding.
