National Crime Victims Rights Week
April 23-29, 2023
Since 1981, National Crime Victims’ Rights Week (NCVRW) is celebrated every year in April to unite crime survivors, victim assistance, justice professionals and communities across America to pay tribute to crime victims. To listen to and learn from the immense power of their personal stories; and celebrate the many accomplishments that have strengthened laws and created policies, programs and partnerships that identify and put the needs of victims first.
The goal of NCVRW is to annually publicize and promote the needs, issues and concerns of crime victims and survivors; the many services available to support them in the aftermath of crime; and the challenges that remain to promote individual and community safety across our Nation.
The 2023 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week will be observed April 23–29, 2023 with the theme Survivor Voices: Elevate. Engage. Effect Change.
