First Annual Crime Victims & Advocates Commemorative Day April 3, 2013
The Maryland Crime Victims’ Resource Center, Inc. (MCVRC) invites its members, supporters and especially the crime victims & families we serve and have served, to join us in celebrating this first inaugural event created to remember all crime victims and to recognize and honor the advocates who serve them, 2012 was the 30th anniversary of our founding, originally as the Stephanie Roper Committee & Foundation, Inc., and today continuing as the MCVRC. In 2012, the Maryland General Assembly passed House Bill 766 (Chapter 678 of the Laws of Maryland 2012) which requires the Governor annually to proclaim April 3rd as Crime Victims and Advocates Commemorative Day. In addition to issuing the proclamation, the Governor is also required to take appropriate steps to publicize this day. April 3 was chosen for the commemorative day in memory of Stephanie Roper, who was murdered on that day in 1982 and whose parents founded what today is the Maryland Crime Victims’ Resource Center, Inc.

This year, the State Board of Victim Services is merging the Commemorative Day with the annual Governor’s Victim Assistance Awards and Luncheon. We invite you to celebrate with us by remembering crime victims and honoring all those who have contributed to the crime victims’ movement in our state over the past 30 years.
