Aim4Peace sponsors workshop on crime victims’ rights
The City of Kansas City, Mo., Health Department’s Aim4Peace program joins with the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association, or KCMBA, and the Linwood Family YMCA to sponsor the Crime Victims’ Rights Workshop for area residents. The event will take place Tuesday, April 3 from 6-7 p.m. at the Linwood Family YMCA, 3800 Linwood Blvd.
“Our goal with this event is to inform crime victims about their rights and the lawful options available to them,” said Dr. Rex Archer, director of the Health Department. “It is part of the overall Aim4Peace mission to teach the community to handle their own disputes in a non-violent manner.”
Lawyers from the KCMBA will facilitate the workshop and present information concerning state and local resources related to crime victims’ rights. After the presentation, the attorneys will dialogue with community members, address concerns and answer questions.
The event is part of the Aim4Peace Community Classroom, an ongoing series of informative and educational partnerships to address needs in our neighborhoods. The event is free and open to the public.
