The Lake County State's Attorney's Victim Services Division will be showing The Amendment, a film about victims' rights.

The Amendment is based on a true story about finding triumph over tragedy, injustice, and loss. In 1979, Brooks Douglass and his sister Leslie survived a devastating crime that rocked their community and took their parents' lives. Initially sent into an emotional tailspin Brooks regained his footing, became Oklahoma's youngest state senator and championed important victim's rights legislation.

This National Crime Victims' Rights Week event will include a resource fair and a brief discussion about the film and the importance of victim rights.
