Each April, the Office for Victims of Crimes helps lead communities throughout the country in their annual observances of National Crime Victim’ Rights Week (NCVRW) which will be observed April 19–25. This year’s theme is “Engaging Communities. Empowering Victims,” which emphasizes the role of the entire community, individually and collectively, as we support victims of crime and empower them to direct their own recovery.
