National Public Awareness and Education Campaign
OVC launched the National Public Awareness and Education Campaign to increase
public awareness of and support for victims' rights, issues, and services,
and to help victims' voices resonate across the country. This project, which
is being conducted through a grant to Justice Solutions, Inc., will develop
and implement a national strategy to increase awareness of victims' issues
and the role of OVC and the Crime Victims Fund in serving victims. The grantee
will create resource materials for use during National Crime Victims' Rights
Week (NCVRW), develop awareness activities and supporting resources, and publish
an article about OVC, the Fund, and victims' issues in a major national publication.
The campaign will also build the capacity of victim service organizations to
develop and sustain ongoing public awareness and victim outreach activities
at the community level. For more information, call Justice
