Prosecution-Based Victim Advocacy Day at the Capitol

On Wednesday, February 20, 2008 victim witness advocates from prosecutor offices throughout the state were honored at the Capitol for Prosecution-Based Victim Advocacy Day sponsored by the Prosecuting Attorneys' Council of Georgia.

Advocates in attendance began the day by visiting legislators from their circuits to bring them up to date on issues that impact them and presented legislators with printed materials and pins. Rep. David Ralston sponsored a resolution recognizing advocates which was read while advocates stood for recognition.

PAC hosted a press conference at 11:30 AM outside the Capitol to deliver the advocates' message to the public. Selected district attorneys, solicitors and advocates spoke during the press conference.
