Justice Solutions, in conjunction with the Office for Victims
of Crime (OVC), is pleased to provide you with an exceptional Resource
Guide to help you generate victim and public awareness during 2004
National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, scheduled for April
18 to 24, 2004. The theme for this year’s observance is “Victims’ Rights:
We are particularly excited about this year’s Resource Guide.
Creative new additions include a CD with electronic versions of
all the camera-ready art to simplify replication; a DVD that includes
compelling video footage that highlights the theme (for use in
your victim and public awareness events); guidelines for sponsoring
a poster/essay contest in schools; and new documents that describe
the rich history and leadership of OVC, and commemorate the 20th
anniversary of the passage of The Crime Victims Fund.
The 2004 Resource Guide is also filled with great theme-oriented
ideas, concepts, and strategies that will allow you to join with
thousands of other victim assistance and allied organizations to
make this year’s observance the most effective ever.
Justice Solutions is committed to ensuring that the needs and
rights of crime victims are emphasized throughout each year. This
year’s Resource Guide is a component of a new National Victim
and Public Awareness Strategy sponsored by OVC that seeks to build
capacity at the local level to promote victims’ rights and
services year-round. Future activities include a national public
service announcement campaign linked to local victim assistance
programs, a National Speakers Bureau, and efforts to promote greater
awareness of OVC and the Crime Victims Fund, among other initiatives
Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to contribute to your
2004 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week and on-going victim
and public awareness efforts.
