Sample Proclamation


This year, hundreds of state and local officials and agencies will issue proclamations or resolutions that officially proclaim the week of April 22-28, 2001 to be “(State/local) Crime Victims' Rights Week.” This sample proclamation can be offered to such officials and entities as a foundation upon which to draft an official proclamation that is specific to each jurisdiction's needs. Data from the statistical overviews included in this Resource Guide and/or jurisdiction-specific data can be useful for tailoring the sample proclamation to an individual organization, jurisdiction or state. Victim advocates should request multiple copies of any proclamations issued that can be framed for the offices of the many organizations that co-sponsor 2001 NCVRW activities.
