The Midland Crime Victims Coalition is inviting the public to join the organization in observing National Crime Victims’ Rights Week.
The coalition will observe NCVRW with a ceremony to remember and honor crime victims in the Midland area from 4-5 p.m. on Tuesday, April 21 at the Midland County Courthouse (500 N. Loraine St.).
From April 19-25, the national Office of Victims of Crime helps lead communities throughout the country in their annual observances of NCVRW by promoting victims’ rights and honoring crime victims and those who advocate on their behalf. The week also celebrates the achievements over the past 30 years in securing rights, protections, and services for victims. This year’s theme is "Engaging Communities, Empowering Victims," and the Midland Crime Victims Coalition will focus on engaging the community to grow with law enforcement, build trust and empower victims.
