Create A Community Display for April 10th

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • Display boards.
  • Two-inch stick pins (or double-stick tape).
  • Colored construction paper (NCVRW theme colors are blue and orange; derivatives include yellow, green, and red) with a large hand print that includes the NCVRW theme "pre-printed" on each hand print: "Victims' Rights: Fulfill the Promise" on the bottom of the "palm."
  • Black pens ("Sharpies" are the most suitable).

STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS:

PRIOR TO APRIL 10th

  • Determine number of boards needed to accommodate anticipated number of "promises" from the community.
  • Create a heading for the display boards, with this (or a similar) inscription at the bottom:

A Nation Unites for Victims' Rights
2003 National Crime Victims' Rights Week
"Victims' Rights: Fulfill the Promise"

  • Have a ready supply of "hand prints" on colored paper prepared for April 10th.

ON APRIL 10th

  • Set up a central table or booth where participants can fill out their own "promise hand" with a clear black felt pen.
  • Assign volunteers to help participants place their "promise hands" on the community display.
  • Depending on the turnout, individual "promises" can be read out loud, or simply pinned to the community display, using the two-inch stick pins (or double-stick tape) to secure them.
