                            JOINT RESOLUTION


 
  To designate the week beginning April 25, 1993, as ``National Crime 
                        Victims' Rights Week''.

Whereas there were over thirty-five million crimes committed last year in 
        America, with one violent crime occurring every seventeen seconds;
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 ten thousand public and 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 
        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 the week beginning April 
25, 1993, is hereby designated as ``National Crime Victims' Rights 
Week''. 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.

            Passed the Senate March 29 (legislative day, March 3), 
      1993.

            Attest:






                                                             Secretary.
