NCVRW Resource Guide

  • Camera-ready art files on CD-ROM, including posters, logos, bookmarks, bumper stickers, and a two-page template for a brochure that can be used to promote NCVRW events.
  • Sample press release, speeches, and PSA announcements.
  • Introductory Theme DVD "Victims' Rights: Strength in Unity." You can preview a clip of the DVD.
  • Special features include "Tips for Outreach and Collaboration to Promote National Crime Victims' Rights Week" and "Building Capacity During National Crime Victims' Rights Week."
  • 22" x 27" NCVRW theme poster that can be ordered separately. View this and smaller posters from the Resource Guide in the poster gallery.
  • A special supplemental guide outlining "Milestones in the New Millennium."
  • Tips To Promote Victim and Community Awareness
