The Crime Victims Action Alliance operates on the basic principle that crime victims have been harmed in many ways and that we must ensure that every decision we make takes that into account. We strive to PREVENT FURTHER HARM to victims of crime.
The Crime Victims Action Alliance (CVAA) works to improve and increase the rights and services for victims of crime. Over the years we have been instrumental in the passage of bills and initiatives that enhance the lives of victims; and have successfully blocked many of those that would have been detrimental.
CVAA works closely with government agencies, non-profit organizations, policy makers, and law enforcement to achieve our mission of victim centered justice; decrease the incidence of violent crime, reduce further victimization and to improve the lives of victims of crime.
CVAA membership includes victims/survivors, concerned citizens, law enforcement, prosecutors, policy makers and non-profit organizations. Our members support and participate in our efforts by writing letters, distributing information and speaking at public forums such as Board of Parole Hearing open meetings and legislative committee hearings.
We honor those who have come before us and work as strong opinion leaders and change agents to continue the vital work of ensuring that victims needs are heard and met, and that victims are never forgotten.
