Since 1981, National Crime Victims’ Rights Week has been observed with the goal of promoting victims’ rights and honoring crime victims and those who advocate on their behalf. This year’s theme is Crime Victim’s Rights: Fairness. Dignity. Respect. The theme captures the ideals that inspired the victims’ 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 Victims’ Right Week serves as a call for action, an urgent summons for fairness, dignity, and respect for all victims of crime.
