The Vermont Center for Crime Victim Services engages in a variety of initiatives, often partnering with other Vermont-based and national stakeholders, organizations and agencies. These initiatives allow us to address more specific issues and concerns, as well as those beyond the scope of our permanent programs.
On July 1, 2011, Vermont passed its first anti-trafficking legislation, Act 55: An Act Relating to Human Trafficking (H. 153). The Vermont Center for Crime Victim Services has been designated by the Vermont Legislature to lead this anti-trafficking initiative. We have created a statewide Task Force to establish a service protocol to identify, rescue and protect trafficking victims, including offering them a wide array of legal and other services.
The Vermont Victim Assistance Academy Revision Project (VVAA Revision Project) is an effort by the Community Engagement and Training Department of the Vermont Center for Crime Victim Services (the Center). The VVAA Revision Project will operate during a one-year hiatus from regular implementation of the VVAA, to allow for meaningful exploration and thoughtful development, modification, and building upon the current program, with the purpose of maximizing opportunities for transformative learning.
The Memorial Garden Project was a collaborative effort among many organizations who work with victims of crime. We hope the Courage in Bloom Garden will help victims/survivors feel less isolated. We hope that this community space symbolizes that crime is not tolerated and that victims/survivors of crime should have all the support they need in their own healing process.
The New Neighbors Victim Outreach Project was designed to inform and empower Vermont's refugee and immigrant populations regarding their rights as victims of crime.
