    This description of Tammy Krause's work was prepared when Tammy Krause was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2002.
    Working within the current judicial system and using a defense-based victim outreach model, Tammy Krause is changing the system's view of crime victims by demonstrating how their judicial needs can be effectively addressed without compromising the integrity of the judicial process. Looking at the 100 capital crime cases a year in the United States and the 7 million victims of these crimes over the years, Tammy is going beyond victim rights to address victim needs. She is creating a practice and structure by which victims' judicial needs can be satisfied while protracted cases that burden society can be quickly and appropriately decided.
