Victims’ Rights Week to acknowledge the abuse and trauma that victims of crimes often experience, and to recognize the tireless work of dedicated advocates who have taken up the cause of supporting crime victims across our country. Thanks to the efforts of these individuals, more victims are receiving the care they deserve and accessing tools to empower them as they recover. This week, we express our appreciation for those who support crime victims, and we reaffirm our strong commitment to reducing the trauma of crime for victims and their loved ones.
National Crime Victims' Rights Week (NCVRW) will be held April 19–25, 2020. This year's theme is Seek Justice | Ensure Victims' Rights | Inspire Hope. The weeklong initiative promotes victims' rights and honors crime victims and those who advocate on their behalf.
