- An active role in the justice process, by aiding DAs and by monitoring arrests, convictions, etc.

- Following current legislation and aiding people in legislative work (by doing research, clarifying details, providing referrals to people in other states or on their own, etc.)

- Tracking cases nationwide -- a process which offers access to many people, including prosecutors, police officers, and shelter workers who have an in-depth view of the criminal justice process.

- Monitor date rape cases occurring on college campuses including campus hearings.

- Potential contacts for future employment.

- Dedicated and supportive fellow workers.
