Every year in April, the Office for Victims of Crime helps lead communities throughout the country in observances of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week. This year National Crime Victims’ Rights Week is being observed April 7-13, 2019.

In honor of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, this year's event will feature a compelling message from victims of federal crimes who have lost a loved one to opiate overdose, educate the community about the opiate epidemic and discuss the mission of the United States Attorney’s Office Heroin Education Action Team (HEAT) in an effort to reduce the growing harm to families and communities caused by heroin/opiate abuse.

This project is sponsored by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of North Carolina, and members of the Interagency Council; City of Durham Police Department, Raleigh Police Department, Federal Bureau of Investigations, H.A.L.O.S., NC Attorney General’s Office, NC Department of Public Safety, NC National Guard, NC Victim Assistance Network, and US Postal Inspection Service.

This project is supported by a National Crime Victims’ rights week community awareness project subgrant awarded by the National Association of VOCA Assistance Administrators under a Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) grant from the Office for Victims of Crime, Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice
