Muscogee Nation Family Violence Prevention Program partnering with US Attorney’s Office for “A Community Day of Hope”
Tulsa, OK — The Muscogee Nation Family Violence Prevention Program and the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Oklahoma in partnership with Tulsa Metropolitan Ministry, Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office, Tulsa Crime Stoppers, and the Family Safety Center will join communities nationwide in observing National Crime Victims’ Rights Week with “A Community Day of Hope” Friday, April 23, from 10 AM to 2 PM at Tulsa’s Promenade Mall.
More than 40 different law enforcement, victim services and community agencies will attend and provide public safety and victim resource information to the public. The Tulsa Fire Department will also hand out backpacks.
“We’re so happy to bring awareness to National Crime Victims’ Rights Week by taking part in this informational event and collaboration with our partners,” MCN Family Violence Prevention Program Director Shawn Partridge said. “It’s so important that victims and their families know that the Muscogee Nation is here for them, with 24/7 advocacy services, assistance in getting updates on criminal cases, and to be there for them in their most difficult moments.”
The MCN FVPP continues to expand staffing, resources and services to meet the needs of all crime victims on the Muscogee Reservation.
“A Community Day of Hope” will be held outdoors due to COVID-19 considerations.
