National Crime Victims' Rights Week: Summary Report and Planning Document
As National Crime Victims' Rights Week (NCVRW) becomes more prominent, and commemorative activities become more meaningful, planning and implementing NCVRW activities becomes more demanding. As a result, it is critical for OVC to plan efficiently and effectively for events, using lessons learned from previous commemorations and improving existing planning and implementation processes. As these events are extremely demanding in terms of coordination and logistics, it is also essential that OVC develop a master planning document, or "blueprint," to assist staff who may become responsible for planning and implementing these events in future years. This blueprint would capture lessons learned, suggestions for improving the process, and outcomes associated with NCVRW events. It would also allow OVC to institutionalize the process for planning and administering NCVRW events.
