View the 2023 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week Theme


National Crime Victims' Rights Week 2023 is April 23-29, 2023

National Crime Victims’ Rights Week (NCVRW) will be commemorated April 23–29, 2023. During NCVRW, OVC leads communities across the Nation to honor victims and recognize the professionals who support them.

We are pleased to announce that the 2023 NCVRW theme is Survivor Voices: Elevate. Engage. Effect Change. This year's theme calls upon communities to amplify the voices of survivors and create environments where survivors have the confidence that they will be heard, believed, and supported.

Join OVC during NCVRW 2023 as we commit to elevating and engaging survivors to lift their voices, inform policy and practice, and thereby effect change. By engaging survivors, we will ensure our responses and services to victims and survivors are credible, meaningful, and centered on their individual needs.

Stay informed. Sign up or update your preferences for the NCVRW subscription list to receive important email updates, including the online release of the 2023 NCVRW artwork and Resource Guide.
