Abstract: National Crime Victims’ Rights Week provides an annual opportunity to engage the public in the struggle for victims’ rights. This publication supports the 2012 theme, “Extending the Vision: Reaching Every Victim,” and should reflect the ideals that all practitioners in the field of victim’s rights seek to realize. This report along with the companion toolkit provides information and resource material to help educate communities about victim’s rights during NCVRW in 2012. The contents of this resource guide contains: Section 1) Resource Guide Overview; Section 2) Maximizing Communication and Awareness, including new Presentation Tips and PowerPoint slide artwork; Section 3) Resource Guide Artwork; Section 4) Working with the Media; Section 5) Landmarks in Victims’ Rights and Services; Section 6) Statistical Overviews; and Section 7) Additional Resources. The “Maximizing Communication and Awareness” section includes tools and ideas to plan activities, involve the community, and deepen the public’s understanding of the realities of crime victimization and the importance of supporting crime victims’ rights and services. These resources can help each area plan public events, write presentations and proclamations, and encourage every American to stand behind victims of crime during National Crime Victims’ Rights Week and throughout the year.
