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
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
