Placer County District Attorney’s Office honors victims during this year’s National Crime Victims’ Rights Week
In honor of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, the Placer County District Attorney’s Office participated in a county resource fair, among other events throughout the week.
“Victims are the reason we keep fighting the fight,” said Victim Witness Supervisor Tamara Musolino. “In our daily journey in supporting victims of crime, we fight to empower each one and let them know, at any given moment, each one of us has the power to change the way the story ends. Marsy’s Law was voted into our state constitution as a result of one person seeking to change the end of their story. Victims will not walk this journey alone.”
Since 1981, National Crime Victims’ Rights Week is celebrated every year in April. The week is dedicated to learning about victimization and the effect victimization has on individuals, families, friends and the community. It also serves to promote laws, policies and programs that help victims of crime. Every year, thousands of communities across the nation observe the week by reaffirming their commitment to victims having the rights, resources and services they need to recover from crime.
