Victim Assistance Conference

A letter from the Attorney General

Dear Victim Service Providers:

The Office of the Attorney General is proud to host the 2014 Victim Assistance Conference at the Clarion Hotel in Lexington, April 15-16. Despite budget constraints, my office remains committed to victim advocacy and to ensuring justice and healing for crime victims throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

This year’s Victim Assistance Conference will celebrate the National Center for Victims of Crime’s theme for National Crime Victim’s Rights’ Week, “Restoring the Balance of Justice.” This year we celebrate 30 years of the Victims of Crime Act by focusing on assisting our most vulnerable and underserved victims. We are honored to welcome nationally acclaimed speaker, the Hon. Meg Garvin, executive director of the National Crime Victim Law Institute who will share her passion for assisting crime victims.

We are also excited to present a special speaker for the luncheon on April 15th, the Hon. Charles Gillingham, who has more than 20 years of experience as Deputy District Attorney from the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office. Mr. Gillingham is a dynamic representative for change and service for all crime victims nationwide.

Finally, I would like to commend you for the tireless work you do every day assisting victims of crime and their families. You give hope to the hopeless, inspire the disheartened and lend a powerful voice to Kentuckians who, in their darkest hours, might otherwise have no voice.

We look forward to seeing you at this year’s conference.
