Please join us September 19-21, 2012 in New Orleans, Louisiana for the National Center for Victims of Crime 2012 National Conference. As in past years, this conference will emphasize a multidisciplinary approach to sharing promising practices, current research, and effective programs and policies that are victim-centered, practice-based, and research-informed. Our National Conference is a forum for law enforcement, victim service professionals, allied practitioners, policymakers, and researchers to share current developments and build new collaborations. Conference sessions will highlight practical information to better support services for the wide range of persons victimized by crimes of all types.

The Conference will feature four thought-provoking plenary sessions and nearly 80 workshops featuring distinguished experts leading sessions on topics including:

  • Child and youth victimization
  • Violence against women
  • Trauma and resilience
  • Crime victims with disabilities
  • Victims of human trafficking
  • Immigrant victims
  • Elder abuse
  • Organizational capacity

We look forward to seeing you in the fall!
