Each year, memorial services mark the beginning of Maryland’s observance of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week and feature inspirational speakers, musical performances, and quiet reflection. Family members and advocate volunteers read the names of over 4,000 Maryland homicide, vehicular manslaughter, and missing crime victims.
These memorial services provide a safe, supportive, and trustworthy space for families of crime victims to congregate and share their stories. Many advocates, who strive to serve victims of crime, help to coordinate the memorial services because they understand the importance of a positive outlet for families to cope with their grief and honor their lost and loved ones.
