A Year With Marsy's Law

One year ago, our friends in Kentucky celebrated a victory - the people of the state voted for a crime victims' rights amendment. The Kentucky team and supporters shared a video about what the past year has meant for them and the positive impact Marsy's Law has had on their state. 

Supporters outlined the changes they've seen now that Marsy's Law is in place, including:

  • Victims know they have a right to be more vocal
  • Re-energized and re-invigorated the conversation around what it means for a victim to have meaningful access to justice
  • Given victims a voice
  • Given power back to survivors
  • Provides and protects victims' rights
  • Empowering
  • Respect within the courts
  • Their voice is being heard
  • Made victims central to the whole process
  • Paradigm shift
  • Victims don't feel short changed in the way they have in the past
