Victims' rights candlelight vigil set for April 27 in Wailuku

Mayor Michael Victorino will join the Maui County Department of the Prosecuting Attorney in commemorating National Crime Victims’ Rights Week with a ceremony and candlelight vigil from 5 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, April 27, at the front lawn of the Kalana O Maui Building in Wailuku.

“Victims of violent crime, and their ‘ohana, often walk a long, lonely road toward healing,” said Mayor Victorino. "This candlelight vigil provides an opportunity for the community to come together to support them and one another. I look forward to a day when events like this are no longer needed."

Maui County Prosecuting Attorney Andrew Martin said:  “As we begin to fully realize the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our most vulnerable populations, we recognize that many victims have suffered silently and crimes have been underreported. We hope to empower victims to step forward to seek justice and the resources they need.”

The ceremony and candlelight vigil aim to raise awareness about crime victims’ issues and rights, and provide information about available resources and services. National Crime Victims’ Rights Week promotes victims’ rights and honors crime victims and those who advocate on their behalf.

For more information, contact the Victim/Witness Division in the Department of the Prosecuting Attorney at (808) 270-7695 or visit the Office of Victims of Crime’s website at www.ovc.ojp.gov.
