LUK, Inc. Hosting CommUNITY Voices Event on April 10th in Recognition of National Crime Victims Rights’ Week
LUK has received funding from the National Association of VOCA Assistance Administrators (NAVAA) through a grant from the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC), within the Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice, to promote community awareness of crime victims’ rights and services during the 2018 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week.
First designated by President Ronald Reagan in 1981, National Crime Victims’ Rights Week increases general public awareness of, and knowledge about the wide range of rights and services available to people who have been victimized by crime. The theme for 2018 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week is “Expand the Circle: Reach All Victims.”
NAVAA is a non-profit organization that represents the 56 state agencies that distributes money from the federal Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) Crime Victims Fund to more than 4,000 direct victim assistance service providers. The money in the Crime Victims Fund comes from fines collected from offenders convicted of federal crimes and not from U.S. taxpayers. For information about national efforts to promote 2018 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, please visit the Office for Victims of Crime website at www.ovc.gov.
