Events planned for National Crime Victims' Rights Week

HARTFORD - State Victim Advocate Natasha M. Pierre has announced several upcoming events for National Crime Victims' Rights Week, which is observed nationwide from April 19 to 25.
This years’ theme is “Engaging Communities – Empowering Victims.”
“It is important to recognize this national celebration” Pierre said. “This is the perfect opportunity to unite and bring awareness to our communities surrounding the services available to crime victims in the state of Connecticut."
On Monday, April 20, in Berlin, a free Prot-tekt self-defense workshop is open to anyone 16 years of age or older. Pro-tekt is a personal protection program which adopts multiple strategies to fight violence and crime. It is not a course on fighting techniques, rather a program that teaches defensive skills. For more information and registration visit
On Sat., April 25, the Office of The Victim Advocate is hosting a 5k Run/Walk to engage our communities and empower victims at The Bushnell Park in Hartford.
Runners, walkers, family and friends are encouraged to attend.
Take part in the walk, visit the vendors and informational booths or share in the activities for the family. For registration information please visit
If you wish to participate in any of the planned events please contact the Office of The Victim Advocate at 860-550-6632.
