Victim Speakers Network

About Victim Speakers Network

The Victim Speakers Network provides a venue for crime victims and survivors to have a voice in the criminal justice system by sharing their story in a correctional setting. These meetings provide a safe and respectful atmosphere for crime victims to express their feelings, validate their suffering, restore personal power, and promote healing.
The Victim Speakers Network meetings also provide a venue for inmates to publicly accept responsibility, to hear stories of real victims other than their own, and to help them understand the harm they have caused and the ripple effect of their crimes on victims, their families, and their communities. The Victim Speakers Network is voluntary for all participants. Crime victim or survivors interested in participating in the network may contact Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) at the Victim Services number listed below.
