Victims’ Awareness March Tuesday

Bakersfield and Frazier Park, CA (April 20, 2015 at 10:40 a.m.)—The Kern County District Attorney’s office is sponsoring a Victims’ Rights march on Tuesday, April 21 in Bakersfield, 4-6 p.m. Here is their statement:

In 1984, President Ronald Reagan signed into law the Victims of Crime Act, the first law
recognizing the rights of victims. Every year in April there is a National Crime Victims’ Rights Week. This year, it is April 19th through April 25th. This year’s theme is “Engaging
Communities/Empowering Victims.” While we are honoring all victims, it is especially
important for our community to know that we have not forgotten the loved ones who have been taken from us.

The Kern County District Attorney’s Office is inviting anyone who is interested to join us
and others at the Liberty Bell in front of the Kern County Superior Court located at 1415 Truxtun Avenue on Tuesday, April21, 2015. There will be information tables and displays available for the public to view at 4:00p.m. The event will begin at 5:00p.m. with various speakers, prior to commencing our third annual Victims’ Rights March at 5:30p.m. The march will begin at the Liberty Bell and finish at St. Francis Church, where a candlelight vigil will follow.

If you have any questions, please contact Mark Pafford at the Kern County District
Attorney’s office at (661) 868-2340.

This is part of the April 17, 2015 online edition of The Mountain Enterprise.
