The Michigan Advocate was created in 2000 to provide information and resources to VOCA Grantee-agencies and other crime victim programs and advocates in Michigan and throughout the country. This publication strives to help professionals maintain comprehensive and quality services to victims of crime and to inform advocates of broader issues affecting crime victim services.

The Michigan Advocate is published twice yearly and has recently evolved to an electronic format allowing for broader distribution of news relevant to crime victim services.
