Every year in April, OVC helps lead communities throughout the country in their annual observances of National Crime Victims' Rights Week (NCVRW). The weeklong initiative promotes victims' rights and honors crime victims and those who advocate on their behalf.

NCVRW will be commemorated April 2–8, 2017, and this year’s theme—Strength. Resilience. Justice.—reflects this vision of the future. One in which all victims are strengthened by the response they receive, organizations are resilient in response to challenges, and communities are able to seek collective justice and healing.

We are pleased to present the 2017 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week (NCVRW) Resource Guide theme artwork, theme posters, and web artwork, designed to help communities and victim assistance providers promote awareness of crime victim issues. View and download the 2017 NCVRW artwork today, available in both English and Spanish.
