Attorneys & Advocates Against Domestic & Sexual Violence


Since 1996, our organization has established a statewide reputation as the premiere legal resource for domestic and sexual violence victims, as well as those who work with them including advocates, attorneys, and other system’s professionals. Standpoint exists to respond effectively to the constantly evolving legal needs of domestic and sexual violence victims and is the first resource people turn to in a legal crisis.

Formerly operating as BWLAP (Battered Women's Legal Advocacy Project), Standpoint represents a growing mission and vision for the organization. Standpoint will remain true to it's dedication to offer the highest quality services and resources to Minnesota's statewide domestic and sexual violence community, and aligns our core values and reflects the growth and vision we aim to achieve in the fight against domestic and sexual violence.
