NCVLI Hosts National Crime Victims’ Rights Week Event

April 13, 2011

As part of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, NCVLI facilitated a free presentation entitled, “Internet Perils: Cyberstalking, Cyberfraud, and Child Abuse Imagery.”  The panel included Caroline Holmes, FBI Victim Witness Specialist; Janine Robben, Legal Director of the Oregon Crime Victims Law Center; and Rebecca Khalil, NCVLI Child-Victim Project Director.  The panel was facilitated by NCVLI Executive Director, Meg Garvin.  Panelists discussed the emerging issue of social media and Internet victimization, and some of the unique hurdles currently facing victims in these contexts.

The presentation took place in-person at the Lewis & Clark Law School and was provided as a live webcast for our national audience.  More than 70 people from around the country, representing 22 different states and Washington DC, joined the event.

Following the presentation, NCVLI volunteers were recognized.  A pro bono attorney and two law students received outstanding volunteer awards for donating the highest number of hours to NCVLI in the past six months.
