Every year in April, OVC helps lead communities throughout the country in their annual observances of National Crime Victims' Rights Week (NCVRW), which will be observed in 2016 on April 10–16. This year's theme—Serving Victims. Building Trust. Restoring Hope.—underscores the importance of early intervention and victim services in establishing trust with victims, which in turn begins to restore their hope for healing and recovery.

This year’s NCVRW Resource Guide highlights how serving victims and building trust restores hope and strengthens communities. The Guide contains a vibrant array of theme artwork that is available for organizations to incorporate into their outreach materials. View the 2016 NCVRW sample proclamation to help inspire the community, raise awareness of victims’ rights, and address unmet needs.
