National Crime Victims' Rights Week Keynote and Q&A: The Myth of “Closure”

Event Dates

Victims of crime are led to believe that once the initial trial is over, then we will have closure. Nothing could be further from the truth. We are rarely explained the ins and outs of the criminal justice process and therefore are unprepared for what happens next in the post conviction setting. Instead we are taken into another journey that for many of us has no end, leaving us re-traumatized and without support.

Join the National Organization for Victim Assistance for this keynote webinar, held in commemoration of National Crime Victims' Rights Week.
