Advancing through Adversity: NVRDC's 6th Annual Event

Network for Victim Recovery of DC (NVRDC) invites you to join us for our 6th Annual Event, Advancing through Adversity, in recognition of the ways that survivors must learn to cope with their experiences because they must live with them. The event will also recognize how we, as their advocates, must seek the positive in bad situations in order to continue to do our work with the wind at our backs. We are excited to celebrate NVRDC’s 5 years of providing holistic legal advocacy and comprehensive case management to assist victims in their quest for justice.

Now more than ever, it is vital to send a message of support to all victims of crime and to honor various forms of recovery and perceptions of justice. NVRDC’s services are provided for free to all clients, regardless of income, for as long as they need assistance and representation. All of the proceeds from the Annual Event ensure that our services remain available when crime victims need them most. 

Tickets include admission to the event, food, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, and the opportunity to bid on items during the Silent Auction.

Join us to honor the following awardees:
