About Survivors Speak

Traditionally held each year during National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, Survivors Speak has transformed from an annual event into a year-long movement, bringing together crime survivors, particularly from communities most affected by crime, to honor loved ones and advocate for smart justice policies that transform families, communities and the state. The campaign season culminates in a National Healing Day of Action, where over two dozen cities from coast to coast will hold healing vigils to honor those we’ve lost, to celebrate those of us still here, and to look towards a future where survivors are safe and have the resources we need to move forward.

Join us on this incredible journey!
