National Crime Victims' Rights Week 2024 

We're pleased to announce this year's National Crime Victims' Rights Week (NCVRW) event at Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, VT! Join us on Friday, April 26th 2024 as we honor and recognize victims/survivors, organizations, advocates and other professionals throughout Vermont.


The 2024 NCVRW theme is:

How would you help?

Options, services, and hope for crime survivors.

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?


Friday, April 26th Agenda: 

  •   9:30 - 10:00 AM: Check-in and Welcome
  •   10:00 - 12:00 PM: Workshop with Dr. Christine DiBlasio: "Fostering Resilience through Empowered Healing" 
  •   12:00 - 1:00 PM: Lunch & Raffle 
  •   1:00 - 1:30: Keynote by Dr. Christine DiBlasio 
  •   1:30 - 4:00 PM: The 2024 Vermont Crime Victim Service Awards Ceremony
    •   The keynote and awards ceremony are both open to the public and no registration is required.
