Small Acts, Big Victory

The effort to pass State Question 794 is a people-powered movement. We are relying on a grassroots network that includes victims of crime and their families, victim advocates, law enforcement personnel, elected officials, and many others. All of us are united by our belief that crime victims deserve Constitutionally protected rights as outlined in Marsy’s Law.
