Dear Victims' Rights Community,

June was a truly inspiring month in the victims' rights community.  At NCVLI's 10th Annual Crime Victims' Rights Conference, members of the victims' rights community congregated from across the country, representing every corner of the field.  The Conference was not only a time for victims' rights practitioners to learn from each other, but also to network, build community, and have fun!

Below you will see a few examples of the victims' rights community members who brought their passion to the Conference and helped make the event such a success.  You will also read about our 3rd Annual Crime Victims' Rights Reception - an event that allowed conference attendees to relax and catch up after a long day of learning at the Conference.  The energy at this event was palpable and the photos are great!  Read on to get inspired!
