Between February and April 2019, thousands 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 the most ambitious year yet, with Survivors Speak events in five states and vigils in many more states. Survivors Speak will be held in Illinois, Ohio and Michigan for the first time ever this year! Survivors Speak California will be at the Capitol in Sacramento for the sixth year in a row, while survivors will gather in Tallahassee, Florida for the second time ever. Traditionally held each year during National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, Survivors Speak has transformed from an annual event into a year-long movement. It is 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 entire states. The campaign season culminates in a National Healing Day of Action, where over two dozen cities from coast to coast will hold healing vigils. Stay tuned for more info!
