Since 1981, National Crime Victims' Rights Week (NCVRW) has challenged the Nation to confront and remove barriers to achieving justice for all victims of crime. During NCVRW, we celebrate the accomplishments of the victims' rights movement and reflect on how far we have come.
Every April, OVC leads communities throughout the country in their annual observances of NCVRW.
This year NCVRW will be observed April 24-30. The 2022 NCVRW theme is Rights, access, equity, for all victims. The theme underscores the importance of helping crime survivors find their justice by-
- enforcing victims' rights,
- expanding access to services, and
- ensuring equity and inclusion for all.
