Crisis and tragedy often ignite a sense of outrage, sorrow and
concern which can unite citizens with one another in support of a common cause. When a
member of a community becomes a victim of physical or emotional harm, it may serve as a
painful reminder that no individual is immune to such tragedy. A highly publicized violent
crime often precipitates a desire for community members to take extra measures to protect
themselves and their families. During these times of individual, familial, and community
suffering, the movement of community activism for victims' rights is often launched.
