What is symposium?

 Symposium is a full-day local training during National Crime Victims’ Rights Week. It is for local partner agencies who work with victims of crime and the community about topics that impact victims.  We have a keynote presenter in the morning, followed by four breakout workshops that will be about an hour and 15 minutes long.  The breakout workshops are repeated twice, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. We have tabling available for our presenters and local victim service partners. Booths remain in the lobby, as people have breaks they can visit the booths and are even offered a chance to win a prize for visiting all 10 booths. This year's symposium will be hybrid, offered as both an in-person and virtual training.  We use local donations, sponsorships, and grants to help cover costs. 

We offer a catered luncheon ceremony between the 2 workshops where we give awards and recognize members of our community who have done exceptional work for crime victims. To fill out a nomination form for these awards click on "Awards" tab. We also offer a youth workshop and contest, tailored to address the unique challenges teens are facing. 

All workshops are AZPOST, CLE, CAN, and COJECT certified.   

Remarks from Navajo County Attorney Brad Carlyon

The Navajo County Attorney’s Office is proud to present the 12th Annual Navajo County Attorney’s Office Victims’ Rights Symposium. Ensuring that survivor voices are heard is a year-round commitment in our office. Our victims advocates and attorneys work unflinchingly to listen to, support, advocate for, counsel and secure justice for crime victims.

At this year’s symposium, and during National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, we are, in fact, here to “elevate, engage and effect change,” for survivors. This year’s theme calls upon communities to amplify the voices of survivors and create environments where survivors have the confidence that they will be heard, believed and supported. During this year’s symposium workshops and presentations, we will hear from survivors who have exerted their strength to effect powerful change.

I look forward to seeing representatives from every part of the survivor’s journey at the symposium: first responders, medical personnel, investigators, counselors, prosecutors, and judicial representatives. By engaging with and learning from survivors, we will ensure our responses and services to victims and survivors are credible, meaningful and centered on their individual needs.

Remarks from Navajo County Victim Services Manager Roxanne Pergeson

On behalf of the Navajo County Victim Services Department, I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all who attended this year’s 12th Annual Navajo County Victims’ Rights Symposium. Your presence, participation, and enthusiasm help to make this event a huge success and we couldn't do it without you.

I sincerely hope that you enjoy the event and find it informative, engaging, and valuable. Our goal is to provide a platform for learning, networking, and community building, and are thrilled to provide Navajo County with this opportunity. 

I would like to express my gratitude to all the speakers and partner agencies who make this event memorable and inspiring.

A special thank you also goes to our sponsors, partners, and volunteers, who contributed their time, resources, and support to make the event possible. Your generosity and commitment are deeply appreciated.

Finally, I would like to thank my talented, dedicated staff and team for their hard work, dedication, and creativity in planning and executing the event. It was a pleasure working with such a talented and passionate group of people.

Once again, thank you for making the event a success, and we look forward to seeing you at our future events.
