Twenty Tips For Community Outreach

TWENTY TIPS FOR COMMUNITY OUTREACH

Twenty creative ideas that tie into this year's theme– “Victims’ Rights: Reach for the Stars”– are offered to stimulate your thinking. These suggestions can be implemented “as is,” or tailored to fit the particular needs or style of your organization, agency or jurisdiction. It is important to involve as many individuals and organizations in your community as possible in your National Crime Victims' Rights Week public awareness activities and commemorative events.

PLEASE NOTE:

FREE MULTICOLOR PUBLIC EDUCATION POSTER

POSTER: The Office for Victims of Crime is pleased to announce that it is offering a graphically designed, multicolor, 24 x 38 inch poster to enhance your public education efforts during National Crime Victims' Rights Week and throughout the year. You will receive the large poster in conjunction with the 2001 Resource Guide. To receive a limited number of additional copies of the poster, please contact the Office for Victims of Crime Resource Center at 800-627-6872.

BROADCAST PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

You will also receive, as a component of the 2001 NCVRW Resource Guide, a videotape containing a 30-second broadcast-quality public service announcement (PSA), incorporating the graphic design and themes of this year's Guide. This PSA can be distributed to national affiliate, public broadcasting, and/or local television stations for broadcasting prior to NCVRW. The PSA can also be used as an introductory segment for NCVRW commemorative activities.
