National Crime Victims’ Rights Week

New Hope Proclaims National Crime Victims’ Rights Week
Posted on 04/24/2023
The City of New Hope recognizes the importance of maintaining a safe and secure community and understands the courageous role that crime victims have in the criminal justice process. New Hope has proclaimed April 23-29 as National Crime Victims’ Rights Week to honor this role.

This year marks the 42nd anniversary of National Crime Victims’ Right Week, and the theme is “Survivor Voices: Elevate. Engage. Effect Change.” This year’s theme calls upon communities to amplify the voices of survivors and create environments where survivors have the confidence that they will be heard, believed and supported.

Since the passage of the Victims of Crime Act in 1984, significant progress in improving the treatment of crime victims has been made through the efforts of thousands of victims and survivors. They have turned their experiences into a force for positive change, ensuring that others receive justice, meaningful assistance and compassionate treatment before the law.

The New Hope City Council, City of New Hope and New Hope Police Department reaffirm their commitment to creating a victim service and criminal justice response that assists all victims of crime; and expresses sincere gratitude and appreciation for those community members, victim service providers, and criminal justice professionals who are committed to improving the response to all victims of crime so that they may find relevant assistance, support, justice and peace during National Crime Victimsʹ Rights Week and throughout the year.
