  All Day Free public screening HBO' The Laramie Project   When crime happens, it doesn’t happen to just one person. It happens to a person’s family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, associates, and an entire community. In honor of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, the Crime Victims’ Memorial Peace Garden (CVMPG) is hosting a public viewing of HBO’s The Laramie Project in partnership with Erin’s Pavilion at Southwind Park on Wednesday, April 17, 2013 at 6:30pm. The event is free and open to all. The Laramie Project provides an example of how far reaching the effects of crime can be. In October 1998, Matthew Shepard, a 22 year old student at the University of Wyoming was kidnapped, robbed, tortured, severely beaten and left for dead. He was found 18 hours later, tied to a fence post, unconscious, and barely breathing. Despite a heroic fight, Matthew’s body gave way a few days later when he died as a result of severe head injuries. In the aftermath of this crime, Moisés Kaufman and fellow members of the Tectonic Theater Project traveled from New York to Wyoming to conduct over 200 interviews with residents of Laramie. The Laramie Project is a compilation of those interviews which chronicle a community’s reaction to crime. Sandra Kemp, Director of CVMPG describes the movie in the following way: “The Laramie Project is being based upon real voices from real people. Therefore, it provides a perfect opportunity for genuine reflection and a foundation for learning.” HBO’s presentation of The Laramie Project takes audience members on a journey through the life (and death) of a victim as it explores such issues as tolerance, justice, grief, fear, victim blame, re-victimization, the power of the media, the criminal justice process, violence, peace, compassion, bullying, and the seeds of hate. Victim Services Provider Fair will be held in conjunction with the event. Resource materials on the topics of victimization, trauma, recovery, mental health, criminal and civil justice, and the types of services available to victims of crime to include Crime Victims’ Compensation will be on display and available to attendees. The Victim Service Providers’ Fair is designed to link governmental agencies and non-governmental organizations to create a better referral network for victims. CVMPG serves as the umbrella for which other individuals, agencies and organizations who are committed to supporting victims can partner to help raise awareness of crime victims’ rights and services. Participation in the Victim Services Provider Fair is free. Anyone interested in participating or providing resource materials, should contact Sandra Kemp, Director, CVMPG at 636-579-2736 or Events are scheduled for Wednesday, April 17, 2013 at Erin’s Pavilion, 4965 South Second Street. Doors open at 5 p.m. for the Victim Services Provider Fair. The Laramie Project will begin promptly at 6:30 p.m. The first 50 attendees will receive an official National Crime Victims’ Rights Week goodie bag which includes a t-shirt, identity theft protection kit, a copy of the book A Face In the Crowd, Forget Me Not seed packets, a booklet about on internet safety, a bookmark and magnet imprinted with hotline numbers for national organizations who serve victims of crime and much more. rnrnThe evening will conclude with an after show discussion and a candlelight vigil as an homage to crime victims everywhere. To ensure adequate seating, groups larger than 5 are requested to contact Sandra Kemp at 636-579-2736 or Event is made possible through a Community Awareness Project Grant provided by the Office for Victims of Crime, Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice. rnrnAbout National Crime Victims’ Rights Week: In 1982, President Ronald Reagan formed a Task Force to explore how victims were treated throughout the criminal justice process. In response to those findings, he signed the Victims’ of Crime Act (VOCA) into law. Created to provide assistance to victims in the aftermath of a crime, VOCA is funded through fines and penalties paid by convicted federal offenders. No tax dollars are used. VOCA helps to finance state crime victim compensation programs and local crisis response centers. Examples include those who serve rape victims, victims of domestic violence, and victims of child abuse and neglect, just to name a few. In addition, personnel assigned the United States Attorneys’ Offices and the Federal Bureau of Investigation who provide direct services to victims are paid through VOCA funding. Each year since 1981, communities nationwide have been encouraged to raise awareness of crime victims’ rights. rnrnAbout Crime Victims’ Memorial Peace Garden: The Crime Victims’ Memorial Peace Garden was born 3 years ago during a National Crime Victims’ Rights Week planning meeting. Once fully developed, CVMPG will provide a place for victims of crime and those who support them to reflect, honor, and heal. rn
