The banner for National Crime Victims' Rights Week. Purple letters on a brown background read "National Crime Victims' Rights Week. April 21-27, 2024." The tagline for the event is "How would you help? Options, services, and hope for crime survivors."

Each April, the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) helps lead communities throughout the country in their annual observances of National Crime Victims' Rights Week (NCVRW). The 2024 theme— How would you help? Options, Services, and hope for crime survivors. — commemorates the progress made by all involved in the crime victims’ rights movement since its inception.
