Locations across Nevada are preparing to GO PURPLE in April and show their support for victims of crime
Each year the U.S. Department of Justice Office for Victims of Crime calls on Americans to remember victims, and support efforts to ensure their voices are heard. National Crime Victims’ Rights Week is set for April 18-24, and this year’s theme is “Support Victims. Build Trust. Engage.” In recognition, Marsy’s Law for Nevada crime victims’ rights advocates ask all Nevada citizens and businesses to unite and GO PURPLE. Sean Flignor, Marsy’s Law for Nevada spokesman says, “Our goal is to bring awareness about the needs of victims and the rights they now have in Nevada, and offer recognition for the outstanding professionals who work each day to protect and inform victims, and see that justice is done.”
Nevada, October 2020 - As communities across America mark Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October, the Washoe County District Attorney’s office is providing clarity on victims’ rights with a newly updated website.
