National Crime Victims’ Rights Week

Residents, organizations, businesses, and landmarks across Wisconsin are going purple this week as part of a statewide recognition of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week (NCVRW), which is established annually by the Office for Victims of Crime within the U.S. Department of Justice. The purple light effort in the Badger State is being organized by Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin. Participants around the state are sporting purple lights on businesses, landmarks, and other structures to showcase support for victims’ rights as the state recognizes one year of Marsy’s Law in action.

The theme of this year’s National Crime Victims’ Rights Week is, “Support Victims. Build Trust. Engage Communities.” This theme emphasizes the importance of leveraging community support to help victims of crime.
