About Impact DWI

Impact DWI is a community action and advocacy organization, which puts an emphasis on ending alcohol abuse in New Mexico, and is run strictly by volunteers.
We are based in Santa Fe, and have been in operation since 1999. We are a tax-exempt corporation operating under section 501 c (3) of the internal revenue code.

Victim Impact Panel

Our Victim Impact Panel provide a forum for victims of DWI to tell a group of offenders about the impact of the crime on their lives and on the lives of their families, friends, and neighbors.

Our panels involve offenders and victim speakers, telling their stories in a non-judgmental, non-blaming manner.
