The Office of Victims of Crime, which helps promote NCVRW, explains this year's theme, Serving Victims. Building Trust. Restoring Hope., as a way to "underscore the importance of early intervention and victim services in establishing trust with victims, which in turn begins to restore their hope for healing and recovery."
It is important to raise awareness of victims' rights because there are still many unmet needs that need addressed.
