Bay Sages next meeting is Feb. 6

ESCANABA — The next meeting of the Bay Sages will be held on Thursday, Feb. 6, at 10 a.m. at Bay de Noc Community College, Joseph Heirman University Center.

Melissa Midaugh of the Victim’s Advocacy Group will be the featured speaker. There are a lot of crimes where there’s a victim involved, including intimate crimes of domestic violence, sexual assault, burglaries, home invasions, car accidents, assaults in general and even things like retail fraud. All of these involve a victim on the other end of crime. Ensuring that they understand and ensuring that they get the information they need in a timely manner and that their voices are heard along the way takes a lot of time, but it is also very important.

Members and guests are welcome to attend meetings of the Bay Sages.
