A Message from Our Director for Crime Victims’ Rights Week
This month we honor National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, an annual commemoration in the United States that promotes victims’ rights and services. While these are trying times and sometimes days can tumble together in a dull blur, this is a great opportunity to be cognizant of the fact that there are co-workers, friends, and loved ones navigating the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic with extra burdens like medical debt or chronic pain due to violence that was inflicted upon them. Their strength and resilience should be celebrated and supported.
