The National Center for Victims of Crime Proposal to Develop the
2023 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week Resource Guide

Project Abstract

The National Center for Victims of Crime (National Center) proposes to enter into a cooperative

agreement for the 18-month period with the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) to develop the

2023 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week (NCVRW) Resource Guide based on the provided

theme narrative, as well as the 2024 NCVRW theme and narrative. The Resource Guide will be

presented as the product of a partnership between the Office for Victims of Crime and the

National Center for Victims of Crime to ensure the continuity of annual outreach efforts

conducted by both organizations
.
The 2023 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week Resource Guide will provide a readymade,

adaptable resource for the victim services field, communities, victims, and the public to

use during National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, in April 2023, and throughout the year to

heighten awareness of the rights of crime victims and the services they can access. Building on

the Resource Guides previously prepared by the National Center for OVC, the 2023 NCVRW

Resource Guide will comprise a wide range of resources including crime awareness posters
,
social media tips and tools, frequently asked questions, event and presentation tips, media

content and strategies, a history of crime victims’ rights, and high-quality art that users can adapt

for their public awareness efforts
.
Working closely with OVC, the National Center will develop the Resource Guide’s

overall graphic design, written content, layout, and web-ready files for OVC’s NCVRW site
.
The National Center also will help manage the production of the Theme video with Video Action promote the theme poster and Resource Guide and provide

OVC with a final report that includes an evaluation of the Resource Guide by the field.
