The Callaway County Victims' Rights Ceremony will be held at 2 p.m. on Thursday, April 25 at the John C. Harris Community Center. The ceremony is hosted by several local agencies such as CARDV and the Fulton Community Supervision Center.

The victims' rights week is a national effort by the Office for Victims of Crime to promote victims' rights and honor crime victims and their advocates. Communities across the country, like Fulton, participate to raise awareness of various crimes and promote a safer America.

The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided during the ceremony.

“It is a national event and we're recognizing it locally here,” said Keli Tate, sexual assault program coordinator at CARDV and event organizer for the victims' rights ceremony. “It's about awareness and designating the week to victims and allowing their voices to be heard.”
