Employees with the State Attorney’s Office of the Fifth Judicial Circuit recently honored National Crime Victims’ Rights Week by wearing purple.
SAO officials said purple is known as a symbol of courage, survival, honor and dedication in an effort to end domestic violence.
With the passing of Marsy’s Law, which helps protect victims’ rights, SAO officials said they’ve adopted purple “to represent these qualities of the courage and survival of all victims of crime.”
SAO officials said their commitment is to continue to serve those affected by crime and remembering the victims, their families and friends.
The SAO website has a special video on its homepage at www.sao5.org to honor victims’ rights.
