The New York State Crime Victims’ Memorial was established in April of 1996. Located directly behind the Legislative Office Building on the grounds of the Empire State Plaza, the memorial was dedicated to victims of crime and their families, as well as survivors of crime in New York State. A brick walkway leads up to the monument with the names of victims of crime inscribed on the bricks.
The Kisok has been brought indoors during the winter months. We anticipate it will be placed back at the memorial site in the spring. You can still view the memorial names at https://tribms.akiosks.com/nysmemorial/
The New York Crime Victims’ Assistance Task Force includes citizens and organizations, both public and private, that advocate for and support the rights of victims of crime. The task force strives to make justice truly meaningful and truly effective by recognizing that crime isn’t something that “happens to someone else.” Crimes can have many victims, and there are countless opportunities to ensure that victims and survivors receive the rights and respect they need and deserve.LEARN MORE MAKE A DONATION
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
