COLUMBIA — In a state among the worst in the nation in incidents of domestic violence, Statehouse lawmakers have taken a step toward teaching young people how to avoid such behavior.

The South Carolina Senate passed legislation this week that would allow minors as young as 16 to get a court order of protection — without their parents’ consent — when they are victims of domestic violence.

Additionally, the bill, which was approved unanimously, would create a dating violence education program for the state’s middle and high schools.

What is Victims’ Rights Week?

The National Center for Victims of Crime and the Office

National Crime Victim’ Rights Week (NCVRW) which will be observed April 19–25, 2015.

National Crime Victims’ Rights Week (NCVRW) is an opportunity to highlight challenges faced by crime victims and to emphasize the ongoing struggle to establish victims’ rights. This year’s theme—Engaging Communities. Empowering Victims.—focuses on the role communities play providing victims with the support they need to pursue justice and recovery. It also calls attention to the difficulties experienced by crime victims in underserved communities or in marginalized groups. Engaging communities and empowering victims takes resources, dedication, and persistence to establish a welcoming, compassionate, and supportive environment for all victims to share their stories. Creating a comprehensive public awareness campaign for your NCVRW outreach allows you to engage your members, local organizations, and the wider public in the important work of providing crime victims in our community with both the short- and long-term help they need as they recover on their terms.

This years Event for Spartanburg SC is:
