Kick-off events and planning tips are suggested. Also included in the resource guide are guidelines for maximizing communication and awareness and publicizing landmarks in victims' rights and services. Statistical overviews and resources are included as well. Practical suggestions are offered for working with the media, and camera-ready artwork is provided on a CD-ROM.
