National Crime Victims’ Rights Week and Sexual Assault Awareness Month 2019
As the nation’s first and largest victim compensation program, the California Victim Compensation Board (CalVCB) observes National Crime Victims’ Rights Week (NCVRW) from April 7–13 and Sexual Assault Awareness Month for the entire month of April.
If you are a victim and you need help now, apply for victim compensation.
If you are an advocate for crime victims, join the NCVRW effort! Download posters, share social media posts, read the fact sheet and more on our NCVRW Resources page.
For additional resources for victims of violent crime, please visit CalVCB’s Victim Resources page.
Sexual Assault Awareness Month
April is also Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Take part in a local denim drive in honor of Denim Day, an annual protest of harmful attitudes about sexual violence. Donations will benefit victims of violent crimes.
