Orange County District Attorney’s Office Honors National Crime Victims’ Rights Week

Santa Ana, Calif. – The Orange County District Attorney’s Office is honoring brave crime victims this week as part of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week.

Every April prosecutors, law enforcement officers and victim advocates come together to pay tribute to crime victims and their loved ones and hear survivors tell their stories of how they are moving forward and reshaping their lives.

While the Coronavirus pandemic forced the cancellation of our annual Victims’ Rights March and Rally, we will never stop fighting for the courageous victims and the loved ones who support them.

This year’s theme is “Seek Justice. Ensure Victims’ Rights. Inspire Hope.”

“The voice of victims will never be silenced,” said Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer. “The current situation has forced temporary court closures and challenged the criminal justice system in a way we have never before experienced. Despite these uncharted waters. the Orange County District Attorney’s Office remains resolute in its commitment to fighting for victims in and out of the courtroom. The strength of crime victims inspires hope in us all.”

To honor crime victims and ensure their voices continue to be heard, the Orange County District Attorney’s Office produced a video compilation of past Victims’ Rights Marches and the victims speaking out for their rights.

Please honor crime victims everywhere by watching – and sharing – this important tribute to these courageous individuals.
