“The most authentic thing about us is our capacity to create, to overcome, to endure, to transform, to love and to be greater than our suffering.” – BEN OKRI (1959–)

National Crime Victim Rights Week (NCVRW) is April 8-14, 2018. One week each April we dedicate to learning more about victimization and its impact on individuals, families and our communities and to advocating for policies and programs that help victims recover and move forward.

You can support the rights of crime victims by participating in an NCVRW event in your community. Here are just a few of the events in our area:
