On October 28, 2000, the Trafficking Victims Protection Act was signed into law. This Act provided the framework and resources to help combat human trafficking and ensure services for victims.
Join the Office for Victims of Crime in commemorating the 20th anniversary of this landmark legislation.
On Wednesday, September 30, 2020, Attorney General Barr announced more than $295 million to improve public safety, serve victims of crime and support youth programs in American Indian and Alaska Native communities. Approximately $118 million of that funding will be administered by the Office for Victims of Crime.
Each year, the Office for Victims of Crime recognizes exceptional individuals and organizations for their outstanding service in supporting victims.
These award recipients were selected for their vision, action, and leadership in seeking justice, ensuring victims’ rights, and inspiring hope.
