SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.– National Crime Victims’ Rights Week is a time to honor crime victims, the surviving families of homicide victims, and those who work directly to assist victims of crime. This year, National Crime Victims’ Rights Week will be observed April 2-8, 2017. This year’s theme—Strength. Resilience. Justice.—reflects a vision for the future in which all victims are strengthened by the response they receive, organizations are resilient in response to challenges, and communities are able to seek collective justice and healing.

In honor of crime victims, this year the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office will hold a special memorial on Monday, April 3, 2017 at the San Bernardino County Government Center Rotunda from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. The government center is located at 385 N. Arrowhead Avenue, San Bernardino, CA 92415.

During the memorial, the District Attorney’s Office will present the Award for Exemplary Service to Victims of Crime to former NFL star and victims’ rights advocate Kermit Alexander.
