Now Available: 2018 NCVRW Resource Guide
The complete 2018 National Crime Victims' Rights Week (NCVRW) Resource Guide is now available online. This year, NCVRW will be commemorated April 8–14.
Recent data show that fewer than half of victims report violent crimes. This year's NCVRW theme—Expand the Circle: Reach All Victims—emphasizes the importance of inclusion in victim services. To reach all victims, we must—
- build relationships by reaching out, listening, and delivering culturally competent services;
- engage our community across professional, cultural, economic, and other divides; and
- remove barriers to reporting, safety, and accessing services.
Join OVC and communities across the country in raising awareness about crime victims' rights and the services available to victims of crime.
The 2018 NCVRW Resource Guide provides a wealth of materials for promoting public awareness campaigns for NCVRW and throughout the year. It includes planning tips, artwork, crime and victimization fact sheets, and more. Help OVC Expand the Circle: Reach All Victims.
