The mission of COVA’s Crime Victim Speakers Bureau is to empower crime victims to find strength in their stories and work toward creating a violence-free society through social education.
The objectives of the Speakers Bureau are to:
- Educate through storytelling
- Empower crime victims as educators
- Create change within the field of criminal justice
- The COVA Speakers Bureau members identify themselves as victims or survivors of crime or as a person touched by crime. It is important that members of the Speakers Bureau represent the diversity of crime victims in our community, including but not limited to, gender, age, sexual orientation, religion, physical and mental ability, racial and ethnic background, and victimization.
Attendance at quarterly meetings is required and participation in speaking engagements is on an as-needed basis.
