The 8th Judicial District Victims’ Rights Week Committee will host two events to celebrate National Crime Victims’ Rights Week.

This year’s theme is How Would You Help? The 2024 theme asks all of us—friends, family members, neighbors, colleagues, community leaders, victim service providers, criminal justice practitioners, and health professionals—how we can help crime victims. Are you prepared if someone confides in you about a victimization? Is your organization victim-centered and trauma-informed? Are you familiar with the services available in your community?

To commemorate this week, there will be two ways to connect with victim-serving organizations and honor the victims of crime in our communities.

The first will be Sunday, April 21st at Oak Street Plaza in Fort Collins from 10-2. A FREE community resource event where attendees can learn more about the resources available to them, and attendees have the chance to share their experience through art or word in an activity hosted by the Museum of Art-Fort Collins.

The second will be Thursday, April 25th at the Canyon West Ballroom at the Lincoln Center in Fort Collins from 5:30-8:00 p.m. This FREE event will feature speakers who have experienced being a victim of crime, honoring a victim-service provider in our community, and a candlelight vigil honoring crime victims, survivors, and their families.

Some of the organizations in attendance at these events include Alternatives to Violence, the Ashley Doolittle Foundation, CASA, ChildSafe, Crossroads Safehouse, Fort Collins, Loveland, and the Larimer County Sheriff’s Offices’ Victim Service Departments, the Survivor Advocacy and Feminist Education Center (SAFE) and more.

Guests can enjoy light refreshments and participate in the candlelight vigil by sharing a name or word of affirmation. Please RSVP for this event at the following link:
