National Crime Victim Rights Week

Texas is observing National Crime Victims' Rights Week April 26 May 2 in 2009. This year's theme is 25 Years of Rebuilding Lives: Celebrating the Victims of Crime Act. Communities across the state are supporting crime victim rights by coming together and holding memorials, educational activities, hotlines, conferences and other events.

A statewide observance will be held in Austin on April 29 at the Texas Capitol with Attorney General Greg Abbott providing remarks and representatives from statewide agencies and organizations honoring Texas crime victims.

Please contact local organizations for more information about this year's event or to become involved in planning for next year.
