Since 1981, National Crime Victims’ Rights Week has been celebrated annually in April. It is a week long dedication that focuses on victimization, the effect victimization has on individuals, families, friends, and the community, and to promote laws, policies, and programs to help victims of crime.

National Crime Victims’ Rights week is a reminder to all that Domestic Violence is a community issue that is unlike any other crime. It is violence from someone you know, who claims to love you, in sanctity of your home and often remains hidden from close friends and family. See our article about domestic violence and how we are working to combat this crime.
