Now Online: 2020 National Crime Victims' Rights Week Resource Guide

National Crime Victims' Rights Week, April 19-25, 2020

The 2020 National Crime Victims' Rights Week (NCVRW) Resource Guide is now available online. This year, NCVRW will be commemorated April 19–25.

The 2020 NCVRW Resource Guide provides a wealth of materials, in both English and Spanish, to educate the public about victims' rights, protections, and services during NCVRW and throughout the year. The online guide includes—

  • guidance on developing your campaign,
  • tips and tools to communicate your message,
  • the 2020 NCVRW Theme Video,
  • web artwork, theme artwork, posters, and more.

Organizations can incorporate these materials into their own online campaigns and other efforts to raise public awareness.

During NCVRW, we recognize the hard work of the crime victims field. This year's NCVRW theme—Seek Justice | Ensure Victims' Rights | Inspire Hope—commemorates the individuals and groups whose advocacy has propelled the victims' rights movement forward for the past half century, inspiring in victims and their loved ones a feeling of hope for progress, justice, and healing.

Use the 2020 NCVRW Resource Guide to help your organization raise awareness about crime victims' rights online and at future events.
