Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum and CVSSD Staff
In July and August of 2020, DOJ’s Crime Victim and Survivor Services Division (CVSSD) and Civil Rights Unit held twelve community conversations with people from demographic groups who have historically been discriminated against, experienced exclusion, and who are currently impacted by ongoing inequity. The sessions were a continuation of in-person discussions begun in the Fall of 2019. Throughout our twelve Summer 2020 Community Conversation sessions, participants requested that we provide a summary report of information shared and takeaways for service needs around the state. The information shared has been outlined in the report: Opening Pathways to Justice and Improving Support for Populations Impacted by Inequity. The dates for DOJ’s 2021 Spring/Summer Community Conversations will released in early 2021.
We know that taking measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 means changing the ways you deliver support to victims and survivors. We’ve included some helpful information for managing your grant funds here, as well as useful links to state, national and federal partners. Thank you for your continued commitment to serving community members and protecting employees and volunteers.
Crime Victims’ Rights Week
To help raise awareness about Oregon’s Crime Victims’ Rights, we designed a special calendar. You can preview them here (English/Spanish).
