NCVLI Hosts First Vision 21 Forum
February 21, 2011
In the summer of 2010, NCVLI was awarded a grant from the Department of Justice’s Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) to undertake one of four projects under the “Vision 21: Transforming Victim Services” initiative. “Vision 21” is designed to develop a philosophical and strategic framework for defining the role of the field in the country’s response to crime and moving the field forward in the future.
On January 19th and 20th, NCVLI convened the first group of stakeholders from all over the country to begin a conversation about the future of victims’ services. Amazing dialogue took place about how to better meet the needs of victims and how to form productive partnerships among various areas of the field. Vision 21 will continue to develop in the coming months.
