April 7, 2022 Since 1981, National Crime Victims’ Rights Week (NCVRW) has challenged the nation to confront and remove barriers to achieving justice for all victims of crime. Every April, the U.S. Officer for Victims of Crime leads communities throughout the country in their annual observances of NCVRW. This year NCVRW will be observed from April 24–30. The 2022 NCVRW theme is Rights, access, and equity for all victims. The theme underscores the importance of helping crime survivors find their justice by enforcing victims’ rights, expanding access to services, and ensuring equity and inclusion. The 2022 NCVRW Resource Guide is available to help you raise awareness about victims’ rights, protections, and services in the months leading up to NCVRW, during NCVRW, and throughout the year.
