2018 National Crime Victims' Rights Week (NCVRW)

Every year in April, OVC helps lead communities throughout the country in their annual observances of NCVRW, which will be observed in 2018 on April 8–14.

To help the field prepare for NCVRW, the 2018 NCVRW color palette (PDF 565 kb) and a customizable copy of the 2018 NCVRW Theme Poster (PDF 241 kb) are now available.

This year’s theme—Expand the Circle: Reach All Victims—emphasizes the importance of inclusion in victim services. This year’s theme addresses –

  • how the crime victims field can better ensure that every crime victim has access to services and support, and
  • how professionals, organizations, and communities can work in tandem to reach all victims.
