"A Nation Unites for Victims' Rights": Maximizing National Impact With State and Local Concurrent Events

As you plan your 2003 National Crime Victims' Rights Week activities, OVC invites you to join in its National Candlelight Observance in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, April 10, by sponsoring a concurrent event in your community. The overall impact of "A Nation Unites for Victims' Rights" will be truly significant if communities across America join together in unity on April 10.

This Field Resource Package is designed to:

  • Help you plan "A Nation Unites for Victims' Rights" observance in your community.
  • Provide you with resources to help publicize and implement a community-based event - linked to Washington, D.C. and communities across America - on the evening of April 10.
  • Coordinate similar events that will be held across the nation on April 10, and provide national media relations to highlight this inaugural nationwide observance.
