)-- Victims and their families deserve a voice, and the prosecutors and staff at the Palm Beach County State Attorney’s Office want to give them a platform to be heard.
The State Attorney’s Office has organized The First Annual Victim’s Rights Walk to be held Saturday April 28, 2012 in Palm Beach Shores. Crime victims, their families, members of the State Attorney’s Office and victim’s rights advocates will all walk in an effort to show support for anyone who has ever been touched by a crime, both major and minor. “The goal of the walk is to reach every victim and let them know that, despite the level of crime that has affected their lives, there are people who care about them and their future,” says Heather Simmons, Victim Coordinator for the Palm Beach County State Attorney’s Office. “We want them to know they have a voice, and this walk is a show of unity and support that every victim deserves.”
The walk begins at 8:30am in the Community Center, at 90 Edwards Lane in Palm Beach Shores. The public can register for the event on the Palm Beach County State Attorneys website. The Victim’s Rights Walk will wrap up the 2012 National Crime Victim’s Rights Weeks which officially began on April 22nd.
