Hall County to celebrate victims’ rights throughout April

Every April, Hall County observes National Crime Victims’ Rights Week (NCVRW) by promoting victims’ rights and honoring crime victims and those who advocate on their behalf.

This year’s NCVRW will be held April 19-25 and the theme “Engaging Communities. Empowering Victims.” presents the opportunity to highlight the diversity of our communities, expand partnerships to serve victims of crime, enhance efforts to meet victims where they are, and empower crime victims as they pursue justice and recovery.

The Hall County Solicitor and District Attorney’s offices will observe National Crime Victims’ Rights Week with special events and programs, including a Memorial Garden Dedication in memory of children who have died as a result of child abuse. The dedication will be held at The Edmonson-Telford Center for Children on Monday, April 20 at 11:30 a.m. In addition, the annual Victims’ Rights Butterfly Release is also planned for 11 a.m. on Friday, April 24 at Kenyon Plaza next to the Hall County Courthouse. The public is invited to attend both events.

Throughout the month of April, the Hall County Solicitor and District Attorney’s offices will also commemorate the advancement of victims’ rights by recognizing a number of local agencies that provide expanded support and services to those in the Hall County community who are affected by crime. Among those to be highlighted are Edmonson-Telford Center for Children, Rape Response, Children’s Center for Hope and Healing, Gateway Domestic Violence Center, New Hope Counseling, Family Ties, Family Recovery, Creation Counseling, Family Connection, Hall-Dawson Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), Family Promise and Legacy Link.

“Hall County is incredibly fortunate to have these outstanding agencies which serve as valuable resources for crime victims,” Hall County Solicitor Stephanie Woodard said. “By engaging these agencies, we are able to better serve all victims of crime and provide the necessary support they need to heal.”
