Crime victims face many obstacles accessing justice and rebuilding their lives. The civil justice system offers victims another opportunity to obtain justice. However, this opportunity is often missed because victims and service providers are unprepared to direct victims toward civil action.
The National Center for Victims of Crime is offering a free training seminar on the resources and strategies available to victims through civil action. Attendees will learn skills and knowledge to help guide victims through the civil justice system—
- obtain justice,
- hold responsible parties accountable,
- prevent future crimes, and
- obtain the financial resources victims need to rebuild their lives.
