Since 1981, National Crime Victims’ Rights Week (NCVRW) has challenged the Nation to confront and remove barriers to achieving justice for all victims of crime. During NCVRW, we celebrate the accomplishments of the victims’ rights movement and reflect on how far we have come.
Save the date for NCVRW 2022, which will be observed April 24–30. The 2022 NCVRW theme is Rights, access, equity, for all victims. The theme underscores the importance of helping crime survivors find their justice by:
- enforcing victims’ rights
- expanding access to services
- ensuring equity and inclusion for all
The theme also highlights the need for victims of violent crime to have the necessary resources to allow them to heal and receive the fundamental justice they deserve. The events also recognize crime victims, survivors, and their family members in our community.
