April 10, 2011, marks the beginning of National Crime Victims Rights Week, a time to honor victims and advocates of victims’ rights.
“This year’s theme - Reshaping the Future, Honoring the Past - pays tribute to the millions of crime victims over the decades who have summoned the strength to rebuild their shattered lives, families, and communities, one step at a time. Similarly, it honors the victim service community whose members have walked alongside these victims, responding to their courage with unwavering commitment and skillful guidance.” U.S. Department of Justice, Office for Victims of Crime.
In communities throughout the state, there are plans underway for the National Crime Victim’s Rights Week Activities. This is indeed a time for victims, survivors, family members, victim advocates, criminal justice professionals and community members to come together in a united effort to honor and remember our loved ones and the crimes which have affected our lives.
To learn how some of our Texas communities are joining victims, survivors, family members, community members, victim advocates and criminal justice professionals in remembering and honoring crime victims please browse on the link below.
