Unite and GO PURPLE for Crime Victims’ Rights Week
Nevada, April 19-25, 2020
Advocacy Organizations & Supporters,
Our team at Marsy’s Law for Nevada is thinking of you as your office faces the challenges linked to the COVID-19 virus. This time of uncertainty is creating concerns personally and professionally. We wish you strength, wisdom and good health as you face the decisions on your plate each day.
We also would like to continue our united recognition for victims of crime across Nevada. We ask you to join us and GO PURPLE in your own way, during National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, April 19 to the 25. A week that recognizes the importance of the constitutional rights Nevada provides, and compassionate consideration that victims deserve in the Silver State.
As leaders of advocacy across our state, working hand in hand with colleagues and victims of crime, we would like to ask that you help spread awareness.
GO PURPLE AND SHARE YOUR PHOTOS
Select a day during NCVRW and show your support via social media.
Perhaps wear something purple and take a Selfie. Make a handmade sign and send your message. Get creative and Go Purple as you social distance with your co-workers still in the office, or on a ZOOM meeting. Then POST.
Marsy’s Law for Nevada would love to SHARE your support and post your photos as well. Please alert us on which date you plan to post your GO PURPLE photo. We will SHARE your post and happily support your organization/agency.

As we unite on behalf of crime victims, we also want to pass along updates from the National Crime Victim Law Institute (NCVLI), which has various resources for your use year-round. We are certain you are aware of this information but given the mounting challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic, we thought we would pass along the information in case you haven’t seen the newest posts. NCVLI has put together a resource page on their website here: https://law.lclark.edu/live/news/43063-covid-19- resources-for-legal-services-and-victims
Seek Justice, Ensure Victims' Rights, and Inspire Hope. This is the message of hope and inspiration from the US Department of Justice, and Office of Victims of Crime in recognition of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, April 19-25, 2020.
We thank you again for your dedication to protecting our neighbors across Nevada. Stay safe and healthy!
