Since 1981, National Crime Victims’ Rights Week (NCVRW) is a time to renew our commitment to serving all victims of crime, to acknowledge the achievements in victim services and allied professions, to honor those who have gone above and beyond in their service to others, and to remember crime victims and survivors.
Every April, the Office for Victims of Crime leads communities throughout the country in their annual observances of NCVRW. The 40th anniversary of NCVRW will be observed April 18–24, 2021.
Office for Victims of Crime Director Hart selected a theme—Support Victims. Build Trust. Engage Communities.—that emphasizes the importance of leveraging community support to help victims of crime.
