        S.J.Res. 62
                       One Hundred Third Congress

                                 of the

                        United States of America

                          AT THE FIRST SESSION

          Begun and held at the City of Washington on Tuesday,
  the fifth day of January, one thousand nine hundred and ninety-three

                            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 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.

                                Speaker of the House of Representatives.

                             Vice President of the United States and    
                                                President of the Senate.
