Binghamton’s Crime Victims’ Assistance Center Prepares for Victims’ Rights Week

Speaking on the April 13th edition of the local public affairs program, Southern Tier Close Up, executive director of the Crime Victims’ Assistance Center in Binghamton, Raini Baudendistel outlined plans for this year’s local observance.

Leading up to National Crime Victims’ Rights Week April 21st-27th, CVAC has erected miniature versions of the victims’ memorial wall at several locations around the Binghamton area including the Broome County Public Library on Main Street. The full memorial wall will be assembled in the Oakdale Mall April 19th.

This year’s theme is ‘New Challenges: New Solutions.’  Baudendistel says local challenges include enacting legislation to catch law enforcement up to modern crime and dealing with evolving crime on social media.

During the week, there will be a tribute to victims, survivors and family members at Otsiningo park April 23rd at 6 p.m. and the Annual Crime Victims’ Rights Week Breakfast April 26th at 8 a.m. at the Riverwalk Hotel. The keynote speaker will be Binghamton University criminologist, Kevin Wright.

Southern Tier Close Up airs Saturdays at 12:10 p.m. on News Radio 1290 WNBF.
