                            JOINT RESOLUTION


 
Designating April 25 through May 1, 1993, as ``National Crime Victims' 
                             Rights Week''.

Whereas there were over 35,000,000 crimes committed last year in America, with 
        one violent crime occurring every 17 seconds;
Whereas more than 4 out of 5 Americans are personally ``very concerned'' about 
        violent crime;
Whereas victims of crime across America deserve respect and assistance not only 
        from the criminal justice system, but from society as well;
Whereas there is a crucial need to provide crime victims with quality programs 
        and services to help them recover from the devastating psychological, 
        physical, emotional and financial hardships resulting from their 
        victimization;
Whereas there are 10,000 public and private agencies and organizations in the 
        United States that are dedicated to improving the plight of crime 
        victims;
Whereas the Nation's victims' rights movement and allied professions deserve 
        recognition for their tireless efforts on behalf of victims of crime and 
        their struggle to reduce senseless violence in America; and
Whereas it is essential for all Americans to join together and commit their 
        individual and collective resources to victim assistance and violence 
        reduction: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United 
States of America in Congress assembled, That April 25 through May 1, 
1993, is designated as ``National Crime Victims' Rights Week'', and the 
President is authorized and requested to issue a proclamation calling 
upon the people of the United States to observe the week with 
appropriate ceremonies and activities.
