National Crime Victims' Rights Week

2020 "Unsung Heroes" Awards

 

The Office of the Attorney General is currently accepting nominations for the 2020 “Unsung Heroes", an award program which recognizes outstanding service and support to victims of crime in the Commonwealth. Attorney General Herring established these awards in 2017 to acknowledge those individuals across the state working tirelessly to aid victims in their recovery and healing, promote trauma-informed responses, challenge permissive or dismissive attitudes towards victims' issues, and affect change.

Across the state, there are individuals doing critical, life-saving work with and on behalf of crime victims, work that often goes unrecognized. Virginia's “Unsung Heroes" serve victims in many capacities: as officers responding to service calls, as advocates helping victims navigate the court system, as volunteers answering hotline calls, as survivors telling their stories so that others feel less alone. If you know someone who you believe should be honored for their commitment to victim services, nominate them for the Unsung Hero award!

You can nominate your "Unsung Hero" by filling out this form. Completed nomination forms should be submitted to the OAG Victim Notification Program at This email address is being protected from spambots.

If you have any questions, please contact Kyanna Perkins, Victim Notification Program Director, at (804) 786-5284 or via email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
