November 11th meeting: Victim Advocate; Great Beginnings

When a crime occurs, who provides help and support to the victims?  Victim advocates, available through the Pima County Attorney’s Office, provide support for crime victims from the initial crisis call through court appearances and trials.  Our own Lisa Sternberg will share stories about her work as a volunteer Victim Services Advocate, and use role-play to take us inside a typical case.

We’ll have a delicious lunch, and a fun book drawing.

In our afternoon session, we’ll be having a group discussion on Great Beginnings.  Have a favorite book with a great beginning? Or have you written one of your own? Bring it in! We’ll share these and discuss what makes a great beginning great.
