Honoring Survivors of Crime and Advancing Their Rights

Join us for NCVRW every April

NOVA observes National Crime Victims’ Rights Week during April each year. We offer free webinars and virtual events highlighting survivors of crime and offer opportunities for engagement and connection for those working in the field of victim advocacy, including NOVA’s Annual Virtual 5K.

“I love NOVA’s NCVRW events and this year was no different! The speakers and content are all so inspiring and help me improve my response as an advocate.”
