City to announce plans for National Crime Victims’ Rights Week


Maricopa City Council is set to proclaim Victims’ Rights Week at its meeting on Tuesday, April 18. Mayor Nancy Smith will make the proclamation, which will highlight the city’s commitment to supporting all victims of crime.

The announcement comes as the city prepares to join the nation in recognizing National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, which has been observed annually since 1981. This year’s theme, “Survivor Voices: Elevate. Engage. Effect Change,” emphasizes the need for communities to amplify the voices of survivors and commit to creating an environment where survivors feel heard, believed, and supported.

The City Council meeting starts at 6 p.m. and all are welcome to attend.
