Since 1981, National Crime Victimsâ€™ Rights Week has been observed with the goal of promoting victimsâ€™ rights and honoring crime victims and those who advocate on their behalf. This yearâ€™s theme is Crime Victimâ€™s Rights: Fairness. Dignity. Respect. The theme captures the ideals that inspired the victimsâ€™ rights movement. Not so long ago victims were being excluded from courtrooms and blamed for their victimization, realities that unfortunately still exists for many victims. National Crime Victimsâ€™ Right Week serves as a call for action, an urgent summons for fairness, dignity, and respect for all victims of crime.
