The Modern Crime Victims’ Rights Movement began more than 30 years ago and aspired to improve the treatment of crime victims in the justice system. NCVLI was conceived in 1997 by Professor Doug Beloof to be a national resource for crime victim practitioners and victims to support the assertion and enforcement of victims’ rights in criminal and civil processes.

During this past fiscal year (2011-2012), NCVLI’s work was funded predominately by federal grants derived not from tax dollars but from fines, penalty assessments, and bond forfeitures of convicted federal criminal offenders. During this same period, NCVLI spent 84% of its total expenses on program services. NCVLI is committed to ensuring that its rights enforcement work continues long into the future. All contributions to NCVLI are tax deductible.
