The Vermont Center for Crime Victim Services is hosting a series of listening forums around Vermont this fall to give victims and survivors of crime – including business owners and family members – a chance to speak out about their experiences in the criminal justice system.
The organization would like to hear about both positive and negative experiences at these free events.
The nearest forum for local residents will be Oct. 30, 6-7:30 p.m. at the Isley Public Library in Middlebury. Other forums are planned in St. Johnsbury, North Hero and Brattleboro.
Anyone who would like to comment but cannot attend a forum may comment via email to the address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Established in 1992, the Vermont Center for Crime Victim Services administers the Vermont Victims Compensation Program, the Vermont Restitution Unit, the Vermont Victim Assistance Program, and the Vermont Victim Assistance Academy, as well as several state and federal grant programs that benefit Vermont’s crime victims.
