Since 1981, National CrimeVictims' Rights Week (NCVRW)has challenged the nation to confrontand remove barriers to full justice for victims of crime. Each year, communities across the country revisit the history of the victims' rights movement and recommit themselves to advancing the progress already achieved.
This year's theme is "Strength. Resilence.Justice." which reflects the vision for the future. One, in which all victims are strengthened by the response they receive, oragnizations are resilient in response to challenges, and communities are able to seek collective justice and healing.
The Berks County Crime Victims' Rights Committee plans local events each year to observe this week. Below is details of the event for this year:
