Honoring survivors of violent crimes

News

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Part of the push to declare victory over violence is a focus on those who’ve been victimized and have survived violent situations. 

Tonight many of those survivors gathered in Little Rock for a candlelight vigil. 

This is Crime Victims Rights week. 

Advocates want these survivors and others out there to know that help is always available. 

“The end result really would be a sense of connectedness in the community, and an understanding that, no matter who they are, what circumstances they come from, there are resources available, and there’s a community that’s really ready and willing to open their arms and take them in and support them, no matter what happens in the future,” says Beth Goodrich, Executive Director of Arkansas Coalition Against Domestic Violence. 

The group says it’s hoping to reach out to under-served victims of violence including minorities, members of the LGBTQ community and those with disabilities.
