National Association to Prevent Sexual Abuse of Children
The National Association to Prevent Sexual Abuse of Children is a national organization working to prevent a most pervasive and hidden danger: childhood sexual abuse.One in four children in America is a victim of childhood sexual abuse at a staggering cost to us all. That’s why we must expose offenders and those who protect them. We must change laws to protect innocent children, not powerful adults.
National Crime Victim Law Institute
Only thirty years ago, victims of crime had few rights in the criminal justice system. Today, statutory and constitutional rights exist for crime victims in every state, as well as in federal law. At a minimum, victims have certain rights. NCVLI’s team of attorneys and its nationwide network of legal clinics and pro bono attorneys are dedicated to protecting, enforcing, and advancing victims’ rights to ensure that victims are recognized as participants in the criminal justice system.
