20 Oct The Victim’s Rights Enforcement Project: An Achievement for Rights Enforcement in Arizona
The National Crime Victim Law Institute, has received several accolades over the past year. In Arizona, NCVLI has become a partner in a collaborative effort together with five different organizations including the Arizona Crime Victim Rights Law Group to establish The Victim’s Rights Enforcement Project. This project seeks enforcement of the legal rights of crime victims through the use of social and legal services to crime victims at no cost to them. We are proud that our organization, the Arizona Crime Victim Rights Law Group, is a part of this effort.
The Victim’s Rights Enforcement Project is an amazing collaboration allowing service providers to work together to help victims assert their constitutional rights. Partners work together seeking enforcement of constitutional rights protected in the Arizona Bill of Rights including the right to a speedy resolution of their case and the right to refuse witness interviews and certain pre-trial discovery.
This project has changed the lives of many people in Arizona. Our goal is to provide help to as many crime victims as possible across Arizona. We conduct outreach to law enforcement to train victim advocates, and work together as a team to write “friend of the court” briefs in cases on appeal in Arizona, in federal courts and before United States Supreme Court regarding child victims.
