National Crime Victims’ Rights Week

Now Available: 2023 NCVRW Theme Poster and Color Palette

National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, April 23–29, 2023

Since 1981, National Crime Victims’ Rights Week (NCVRW) has challenged the Nation to confront and remove barriers to achieving justice for all victims of crime. During NCVRW, we celebrate the accomplishments of the victims’ rights movement and reflect on how far we have come.

Every April, OVC leads communities throughout the country in their annual observances of NCVRW. We will observe the 2023 NCVRW between April 23–29.

The 2023 theme—Survivor Voices: Elevate. Engage. Effect Change.—calls upon communities to amplify the voices of survivors and commit to creating an environment where survivors have the confidence that they will be heard, believed, and supported.

Use the 2023 NCVRW theme poster and color palette to help your organization raise awareness about victims’ rights and services.

Theme Colors
