2020 National Crime Victims Rights Week (NCVRW)

What is National Crime Victims Rights Week?

Since 1981, National Crime Victims’ Rights Week is celebrated every year in April.  This week is dedicated to learn about victimization, the effect victimization has on individuals, families, friends and the community, and to promote laws, policies, and programs to help victims of crime.  Every year, thousands of communities across the nation honor the dedication of those before us that established victim rights and renew commitment to guarantee that all victims have the rights and services they need to recover from crime.  Victim Support Services participates in marches, tree-planting ceremonies, and many other activities that are held each year to promote victims’ rights and to honor crime victims and those who advocate on their behalf.

National Crime Victims' Rights week will take place April 19 –25, 2020. This year’s theme is "Seek Justice | Ensure Victims' Rights | Inspire Hope" which celebrates the progress made by those before us as we look to a future of crime victim services that is even more inclusive, accessible, and trauma-informed.
