A time to honor the strength and courage of survivors in the aftermath of crime - and a time to speak out in unison for crime victims’ rights and services today and in the future. This year’s theme emphasizes the importance of inclusion in Victim Services.

Eleanor Roosevelt spoke directly to these unsung heroes when she said, "You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face."

"You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' You must do the thing you think you cannot do."

The courage of survivors who "do the thing they think they cannot do" and then find a way to live life again, inspires this event.

For over 20 years, Jefferson Center has been the facilitating agency of the Suicide Prevention Coalition, a community collaboration of stakeholders from Jefferson, Clear Creek, and Gilpin Counties, Colorado, addressing suicide prevention issues in their communities. One of the goals of Jefferson Center’s suicide prevention program is to recruit “gatekeepers” in the community to participate in suicide prevention training classes.
