April 24-30, 2022 the Fifth Judicial Circuit State Attorney’s Office joined organizations across the country to celebrate National Crime Victims’ Rights Week. It is a time to renew our commitment to serving all victims of crime and to remember crime victims and survivors. In honor of the victims whose lives we have lost across the circuit, we created a virtual ceremony and invited family members and friends to view the video in honor of their loved ones.
On the last day of the work week, employees of the Fifth Judicial Circuit State Attorney’s Office wore the color purple to honor National Crime Victims’ Rights Week. Purple is known as a unifying symbol of courage, survival, honor and dedication to ending domestic violence. As Marsy’s Law has been enacted across the country in an effort to shore up the rights of victims, they have adopted the color purple to represent these qualities of the courage and survival of all victims of crime.
