About Survivors Speak
Crime Survivors for Safety and Justice hosts an annual convening of survivors of crime, system leaders, and influencers from across the country during National Crime Victims’ Rights Week in April. The event — “Survivors Speak” — held each year since 2014, is the largest gathering of crime victims in the United States and is a place for crime survivors, particularly from communities most affected by violence and crime, to move from healing to action.
Survivors are coming together to share stories, honor loved ones and ourselves, and advocate for policies to help our communities heal. In 2019, we are hosting Survivors Speak events in California, Florida, Illinois, Ohio, Texas, and throughout the country for our National Healing Day of Action.
