Yolo DA Celebrates Crime Victims’ Rights Week in April

Press Release

(Woodland, CA) - March 2, 2017 - Yolo County District Attorney Jeff Reisig and the Yolo County District Attorney Victim Services Program will recognize 2017 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week with the Eleventh Annual Crime Victims’ Tribute.

This year’s theme is “Strength. Resilience. Justice” and the victims will be celebrated during the week of April 2-8. Yolo County Victim Services will emphasize the importance of multidisciplinary responses and working to build the capacity of individuals, service providers, and communities to respond to crime and support the ongoing healing process of victims and survivors.

National Crime Victims’ Week is a wonderful opportunity to renew our commitment to underserved crime victims, to create partnerships, and to enhance services and offerings from local providers to ensure that all victims of crime receive the necessary support to address their victimization and begin the healing process on their own terms.

“It’s important that our victims and survivors know we are here to support them and help them in their journey of healing,” said District Attorney Reisig. “This week is a chance for us to honor and salute them.”

Yolo County Victim Services will open National Crime Victims’ Week with their annual Crime Victims’ Tribute which will be held on April 3, 2017 from 12:00PM – 12:50PM. The event will be held at the Woodland Opera House at 340 Second Street, Woodland and will honor Yolo County crime victim survivors, their families and those that advocate on their behalf.

The entire community is invited to attend the tribute and join us as we recognize individuals not only as victims but as strong survivors who are part of our strong community.
