NCVLI held its annual Crime Victims’ Rights Reception on June 7, 2013 at Lewis & Clark Law School in Portland, Oregon. The Reception was attended by over 200 people as well as a few guide dog puppies in training. Attendees networked and celebrated with colleagues from around the country while enjoying free food and drink, live music from local band, SloeGinFizz, and a raffle and silent auction. At the event, NCVLI launched a recurring donation program which included free NCVLI branded mugs and jewelry designed by NCVLI staff for donation pledges.

This wonderful event would not have been possible without donations of products and services from over 45 businesses and individuals. We are thankful for their support. Without their support and donations of supporters year round, NCVLI could not continue to work for victims of crime and be a resource to the victims’ rights community.
