Survival, Inc., north Mississippi’s oldest Homicide Survivors Advocacy Group, invites you and your congregation to support survivors of violent crime during National Crime Victim’s Rights Week; April 21st through 27th 2013. Being a victim of crime is frightening and unsettling for the millions of Americans who experience it each year. Because of the dedicated efforts of advocates, law makers, and crime victims, an extensive range of services and resources are available to help victims heal and obtain justice. Since faith-based organizations are the hub of many people’s lives in north Mississippi, we know that your awareness and assistance can make the difference for individuals, families and communities.
Since violent crime is so prevalent, you and your congregation may encounter a victim of crime at anytime. The more familiar you are with Crime Victims’ Rights and the needs of Victims and Survivors, the better prepared you will be to help someone in their time of need.
As a part of National Crime Victims Rights Week, we request that you to devote all or a part of your sermon on Sunday, April 21, 2013 to the issue of victims of violent crime. What can your congregation do to help survivors of violent crime both inside your congregation & in the community as a whole? Please follow these links to view:
