Every year, National Crime Victims’ Rights Week creates an opportunity for communities to come together and reflect on the history of crime victim’s rights. By celebrating past successes, communities are engaged and victims are empowered.
This year’s theme, Engaging Communities. Empowering Victims, calls on local communities to prioritize victims’ rights and to make services accessible to all victims. Culturally sensitive and appropriate resources and outreach will empower and embrace victims outside the traditional network to help support them as they move forward and participate in their community.
