Crime Victims Rights Week is Featured on Southern Tier Close Up

Kathy Whyte/ WNBF News

National Crime Victims’ Rights Week comes early this year, April 6-April 12.

Appearing on the April 5 edition of the weekly local public affairs program, Crime Victims Assistance Center director, Raini Baudendistel talks about events in Broome County marking the week including the display of the Remembrance Wall at the Oakdale Mall.

Baudendistel says it is important from the community to remember people who have lost their lives to homicide and drunk driving and to help the families that have been left behind to also remember and be honored in a respectful way.

April is also Child Abuse Prevention Month and Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

Baudendistle discusses the new Enough Abuse initiative that targets educating adults on how they can prevent and recognize child abuse.

New programs are also getting underway in the area to address sexual assault and the public’s perception and reaction to rape.

More information about Crime Victims’ Rights Week and CVAC can be found at and by calling the agency at (607) 723-3200.

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