It is with great pleasure that the New Mexico Crime Victims Reparation Commission (CVRC) presents our twenty-second annual Advocacy in Action conference. Thank you for being a part of the more than 500 attendees who will experience the fascinating array of national and local speakers the conference has to offer.
As we strive to serve victims of crime, we continue to be faced with new challenges. We are encouraged by the wonderful, hardworking, dedicated people we partner with in victim services, law enforcement, prosecution, probation and parole, and the judiciary, and we are confident that progress will continue.
Thank you for joining us in our twenty-third year of Advocacy in Action. We look forward to another exciting and informative conference.
