journey of hope

Each year Standpoint accepts nominations from our community for awards in excellence and recognizing an advocate, an attorney and a community member such as law enforcement or corrections. The work we do as change makers is often not recognized and there are very special persons in our community, who go above and beyond in their effort to end domestic and sexual violence in Minnesota. This is a chance for coworkers to celebrate each other and allows us the opportunity to honor their hard work.
