Thanks to funding from generous donors, NCVLI is pleased to offer full tuition scholarships to eligible survivors to attend the 2015 Crime Victim Law Conference. Click here to download an application and apply. Applications are due April 17, 2015.
For victim voices to be truly heard, victims need access to information; for justice to be true, advocates need to hear from victims. NCVLI’s Conference accomplishes both. Survivors can’t attend without you. Click here to help fund a scholarship.
