Welcome to Impact DWI

Impact DWI, Inc. 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.

Since our first panel on august 16, 2000, we have served 8221 offenders in 138 Victim Impact Panels and collected $200,158 in fees. Most of that income went to support anti-DWI programs and activities over the years. In 2013, 472 offenders attended our ten Victim Impact Panels. There were 269 from Magistrate Court, 151 from Municipal Court, and 52 from other courts.
