Crime Survivors Say Their Pain ‘Has to Translate Into Something’

Crime survivors from across the country were in Sacramento Monday for National Crime Victims’ Rights Week. During an event, titled "Survivors Speak: Healing Through Action," Parkland shooting survivor Samantha Fuentes and founder of the #MeToo Movement Tarana Burke spoke to a packed room. “There is no way God put me in this world to be used and abused. It has to translate into something," Burke said. The focus of this week's events is to highlight the need for "a safety and justice system that works for everyone. A system that prioritizes prevention, accountability and recovery from harm," according to the news release.

You are cordially invited to attend the National Crime Victims Rights Week Memorial Vigil to be held in Fairfield,
 on Wednesday, April 11th at 12:00 noon,

at the Matt Garcia Academy located at 1100 Civic Center Drive in Fairfield.

This memorial day vigil is hosted by the Solano County District Attorney’s Office and The Matt Garcia Foundation in recognition of Victims lost to violence in our community.
