Violated: Domestic Violence and Child Abuse Victim Rights

Students volunteered to create special glass books to address some of the problems in our justice and human services systems that violate domestic violence and child abuse victim rights. These five books, created by groups, were brought to Washington, D.C. during National Crime Victims’ Rights Week. They were exhibited at the U.S. Department of Justice, Office for Victims of Crime, National Observance and Candlelight Vigil, then to a roundtable meeting with leaders at The Office on Women’s Health in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and lastly to the U.S. Capitol for a meeting with Senator Ted Poe’s office, who sits with the Congressional Crime Victim’s Rights Caucus.
