Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval Proclaims this Crime Victims’ Rights Week In Nevada
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 8-14, 2018
Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval unites with civic leaders across the state to proclaim this as Crime Victims’ Rights Week in Nevada.
Within the Governor’s text the proclamation states that, quote, “Nevada is committed to honoring the rights of crime victims, including the right to be heard and the right to be treated with fairness and dignity, with acknowledgement that meeting the needs of crime victims reinforces the public trust in the criminal justice and social service systems of this great state; and…National Crime Victims’ Week provides an important opportunity to reaffirm a commitment to ensuring that all crime victims have access to effective support services and programs, especially those victims who face unique challenges on their path to recovery.”
Marsy’s Law for Nevada applauds the Governor and leaders across Nevada for their recognition and support of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week.
Many of the goals of Marsy’s Law/Question 1 on the November ballot echo the efforts of the National Crime Victims’ Rights Week efforts as seen by the US Department of Justice and Office of Victims of Crime.
Once approved by citizens, Marsy’s Law will guarantee that victims of crime receive protected and enforceable rights and a voice through the judicial process.
