ABOUT 2019 SURVIVORS SPEAK

Between February and April 2019, hundreds of crime survivors representing a new victims’ movement will join state and community leaders across the country for the largest gathering of crime victims in the United States. 

This will be Survivors Speak’s most ambitious year yet, with events in five states. The campaign’s flagship event, Survivors Speak California, will come to Sacramento for the sixth year in a row, while survivors will gather in Tallahassee, Florida for the second time ever. Last but certainly not least, Survivors Speak will come to Illinois, Ohio and Michigan for the first time ever! Here is a list of upcoming events:

ABOUT SURVIVORS SPEAK

Traditionally held each year during National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, Survivors Speak has transformed from an annual event into a year-long movement, bringing together crime survivors, particularly from communities most affected by crime, to honor loved ones and advocate for smart justice policies that transform families, communities and the state. 

The campaign season culminates in a National Healing Day of Action, where over two dozen cities from coast to coast will hold healing vigils to honor those we’ve lost, to celebrate those of us still here, and to look towards a future where survivors are safe and have the resources we need to move forward.
