We mentioned in our story on Homicide Survivors this week that we'd post a schedule of events for National Crime Victims' Rights Week here on the TW Blog.
We're a wee bit late getting this up, so you probably don't have time to get to the Crime Victims Resource Fair, which is going on from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. today at the Downtown Library. But in case you want to swing by on your lunch hour, there will be free popcorn, cotton candy, snowcones, carnival games and other activities, as well as information about the rights of crime victims.
Tuesday, April 15: The Southern Arizona Center Against Sexual Assault will sponsor a Tucson Youth Take Back the Night event with a mini-fair and vigil from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Catalina Park, 900 N. Fourth Ave. For more info, call 327-1171.
Wednesday, April 16: The Southern Arizona Center Against Sexual Assault teams up with a whole bunch of local restaurants for Dine Out For Safety. Participating restaurants, including Kingfisher, Blue Fin, Pastiche, Barrio Grill, Cup Cafe and others, will donate up to 20 percent of their proceeds to SACASA. Here's a complete list of restaurants and more info.
Thursday, April 17: Stop by Wingspan, 425 E. Seventh St., at 7 p.m. for a film and a discussion on sexual violence in the LGBT community. Info: 624-1779.
