Maryland NOW has members who help victims of domestic violence as they are processed through the system. In Montgomery County, for example, we have an ongoing and very successful court watch. It’s very organized and they are always looking for volunteers. They will also work with other counties in Maryland if anyone wants to start a court watch in another county.
Some members help to monitor how these victims are treated by judges and the sentence consequences applied to the perpetrators. To support these efforts or to volunteer: http://www.mdcourtwatch.com
