Responding to Violence
Violence against women, in the form of crimes such as domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and dating violence, occur at epidemic rates in this country. Victims of these crimes have rights in the criminal justice process. These rights may include the right to privacy, the right to attend proceedings, and the right to be heard at those proceedings, among others.
NCVLI has the goal of ensuring that all victims, including women victimized by these crimes, have the opportunity to exercise their rights in the criminal justice system in the manner that they choose. Under NCVLI’s Responding to Violence Against Women Project, NCVLI protects the rights of these victims through legal advocacy, education and training, and public policy.
