Seeking "Promises" From the Field banner

Fulfill the Promise — In Action

The visual for this year's theme, "Victims' Rights: Fulfill the Promise," is a raised hand signifying a person taking an oath to fulfill his or her promise to crime victims. To truly put this year's theme into action, the Office for Victims of Crime is sponsoring a nationwide campaign to promote consideration and public awareness of the promises we can make and fulfill to crime victims.

OVC is seeking "promises to victims" that are inspiring, and that show compassion for and a commitment to helping victims of crime. Ten people with promises from across America will be selected to share their promises to victims of crime at the National Candlelight Observance sponsored by the Office for Victims of Crime in Washington, D.C. on April 10th.

Professionals and volunteers who assist victims of crime are encouraged to submit entries (please see "Making Your Promise" ).

OVC will select ten of the most inspirational promises to be highlighted during the National Candlelight Observance of National Crime Victims' Rights Week in Washington, D.C. on April 10, at 6:30 p.m. at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial. The ten individuals will be brought to Washington, DC by OVC to participate in this historic event.
