National Crime Victims’ Rights Week (NCVRW) Observed April 18 to 24, 2021

Written By ESR News Blog Editor Thomas Ahearn

The 40th anniversary of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week (NCVRW) – which is promoted each April by the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC), one of six components within the Office of Justice Programs (OJP) at the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) – is being observed in the United States from April 18, 2021, to April 24, 2021.

For the 2021 NCVRW, the OVC selected a theme of “Support Victims. Build Trust. Engage Communities.” to emphasize the importance of leveraging community support to help victims of crime. The 2021 National Crime Victims’ Service Awards Ceremony will be held virtually on April 23, 2021, from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time.

The 2021 NCVRW Resource Guide contains a wide array of outreach tools and sample materials to help participants quickly and capably develop and carry out NCVRW awareness campaigns and other public awareness campaigns throughout the year. The resource guide is available at https://ovc.ojp.gov/ncvrw2021/.

Since 1981, NCVRW is a time to renew commitments to serving crime victims, acknowledge achievements in victim services and allied professions, honor those who give service to others, and remember crime victims and survivors.
