To honor those touched by violence
and remember those lost because of it
New York City Crime Victims Candlelight Vigil
Each April during National Crime Victims Rights Week, the Downstate Coalition in partnership with the New York State Office of the Attorney General and the New York County District Attorney's Office come together for an afternoon of music, reflection and celebration.
Elected officials, Broadway performers, survivors and others join hundreds of downstate residents at the West End Collegiate Church on Manhattan's Upper West Side for a two-hour program followed by a small reception.
