The San Joaquin County District Attorney’s Office, in commemoration of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week (NCVRW), will be raising awareness April 24-30, 2022 about crime victims’ issues, rights, and introduce the community to important resources.
“My administration is closing the commemoration of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week with a Resource Fair. Our goal is to highlight how many resources are available to victims and survivors,” said District Attorney Tori Verber Salazar. “I am proud to say that most, if not all, of these partners are co-located inside our office and the Family Justice Center. We are here to meet victims where they are at on their journey and do whatever we can to assist in the healing process.”
The San Joaquin County District Attorney’s Office is hosting a Resource Fair on today, April 29, 2022 from 10AM – 1PM at 222 E. Weber Ave, Stockton. Vendors at the Resource Fair include:
In addition to the Resource Fair, a BBQ Fundraiser will be held on April 29, 2022. Lunches range between $5 and $7, and raffle tickets for prizes will also be sold. Proceeds will solely benefit the Victims of Violent Crime Support Group.
The Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) leads communities throughout the country in their annual observances of NCVRW by promoting victims’ rights and honoring crime survivors, as well as those who advocate on their behalf. Under the leadership of District Attorney Tori Verber Salazar, victim-witness services and advocates have quadrupled at the San Joaquin County District Attorney’s Office. Because of the added resources and staff, the District Attorney’s Office, on average, assists 20,000 victims of crime per year.
