SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The 23rd Annual Candlelight Tribute for Crime Survivors is scheduled to be held Monday to honor victims and allow crime survivors to share their stories.
The tribute will be held in conjunction with National Crime Victims' Rights Week, which began Sunday. It is held annually to promote awareness of victims' rights and honor crime victims and survivors, according to the Office for Victims of Crime. Organizers planned a slide presentation honoring victims and a candle lighting.
This year's National Crime Victims' Rights Week theme is "Extending the Vision: Reaching Every Victim."
U.S. Attorney Laura E. Duffy will be the keynote speaker at the tribute. Crime victim speakers include Taya Chase, whose car was struck by a hit-and-run driver in 2009; Rita and Dick Moore, parents of Andy Tan Tai Moore, a college student found dead in his San Diego apartment in September 2000; and Elsie Lott, mother of Tamara Henderson, who was shot to death by her husband last year.
The tribute is scheduled to get under way at 5:30 p.m. at the San Diego Police Officers' Association Hall at 8388 Vickers St.
The event is open to the public.
