State Legislators’ Victim Education
Recognizing the importance of providing state legislators with comprehensive information about victims' issues, OVC initiated the State Legislators’ Victim Education Project with the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) in 2002. This project is working to educate state lawmakers and their staffs about victims' rights and services. Project activities include compiling and publishing a guidebook on state laws on victims' rights and services, developing numerous materials on a range of victims' issues for state legislators, and producing an audio CD for legislators that provides an overview of victims' rights. These products are available at www.ncsl.org/programs/cj/victimsrights.htm.
