Austin, TX (PRWEB) November 17, 2010
Crime Victims First (CV1) is proud to announce the launch the online Crime Victims’ Rights Resource Center. CV1 provides free access to the website and provides information and resources to educate, advocate, and enforce victims’ rights. Thanks to our founding sponsors the Stewart Law Firm and significant contributions from the technology firm Houston Techies this launch and victims’ rights enforcement in Texas is possible. Victims/Survivors of crime have Constitutional and Statutory rights to protect them, and these rights have been on the books for approximately twenty years. The victims’ rights movement has made enormous progress, but it’s time to take the next steps towards fulfilling the promise - victims’ rights compliance and enforcement and improving accountability. Crime Victims First is leading the way with our new website dedicated to promoting and protecting victims’ rights. Crime Victims First also provides free access to our online Victims’ Rights Complaint System so victims/survivors now have a remedy. Victims/Survivors who feel their rights have been violated can file online complaints and get support. CV1 also provides access to our online Education Program and Victims’ Rights Compliance and Enforcement Training.
Crime Victims First is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt online Crime Victims' Rights Resource Center. Our mission is to promote and protect crime victims’ rights, prevent rights violations, and improve the treatment of victims/survivors through education, advocacy, and enforcement using technology. CV1 was created in 1999, and after several years of research and development formalized the nonprofit in 2007. CV1 secured its tax-exemption status in 2008. CV1 launched our prototype in 2009. Today, we introduce our comprehensive website and continue to be on the forefront of victims' rights compliance and enforcement in Texas and nationwide. The website prototype was http://www.helpcv1.org and all users will be redirected to http://www.crimevictimsfirst.org.
