As the nation's first and largest victim compensation program, the California Victim Compensation Program (CalVCP) believes that victims' rights need greater attention than one week in April for National Crime Victims' Rights Week. Therefore, CalVCP has dedicated the entire month to honor, recognize, support, and advocate for survivors of violence. We encourage all our statewide partners to observe April as California Crime Victims' Rights Month.
