Victim Impact Panels (VIPs) involve friends, relatives or victims themselves telling a group of impaired driving offenders the tragic outcomes of an alcohol-related traffic incident.
The event is highly emotional and the main goal is to prevent offenders from driving again when impaired by alcohol. The concept of the VIP is not for MADD to point fingers or to place blame, rather it is our effort to raise awareness and change the thinking and behavior of those present.
Participants are welcome to bring guests to the Victim Impact Panel. Receipt will be signed and issued at the end of the meeting. (A copy can also be given if required, along with your receipt.)
You MUST pre-register before attending a VIP meeting by contacting MADD Winnipeg. Please call or email in advance to sign up and verify before attending.
There is a $200 fee to attend a VIP. Fee is due upon arrival for a VIP meeting. There is also an additional $50 fee per individual who is with VIP participants.
Victim Impact Panels (VIPs) occur as required. Times, dates, and locations are subject to change.
