North Little Rock hosts a vigil for the Crime Victims Assistance Association of Arkansas



Little Rock, Arkansas – Thursday afternoon marked the conclusion of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week with a candlelight vigil hosted by the Crime Victims Assistance Association of Arkansas (CVAAA).

Members met at North Little Rock’s Allsopp Park to pay tribute to neighborhoods affected by crime.

“I’m burning a candle in honor of all the victims of domestic abuse throughout the state. Domestic abuse is, in my opinion, one of those topics that is taboo and never discussed. One of the candle lighters, Ashley, said.

“In the state of Arkansas, there have been approximately 52 domestic violence homicides for 2023.”

Candles were lighted in honor of those who have suffered from domestic abuse, disabilities, parents of slain children, LGBTQ people, male survivors, Hispanic people, children survivors, and all other crime victims.
