Too Many Minnesota Families Touched by Domestic Violence

​​Fifty-two people died last year in Minnesota at the hands of a spouse, significant other, former relationship, parent, child, grandparent or other family member. Many more survived the violence, only to have it continue. During this Domestic Violence Awareness Month we recognize and honor Minnesota families impacted by domestic violence.

There is a way out.​​​

Traffic Fatality Milestone

It's a milestone we wish we weren't talking about.

394 fatalities reached on Minnesota roads on Oct. 19. That equals all of the traffic fatalities we sustained in 2020 (394).

Every person killed had a story, had a loved one who will miss them forever.

Put the brakes on traffic crashes by slowing down, buckling up, parking the phone and always lining up a sober ride!
