Victims’ Rights Vigil
Each year during Victims’ Rights Week, the Crime Victims Council of the Lehigh Valley hosts a Victims’ Rights Vigil at the Tree of Life Memorial Grove on Cedar Crest Boulevard in Allentown, PA. Here, we remember loved ones whose lives have been lost due to crime.
The 2020 Vigil has been cancelled due to COVID-19.
We previously thought postponing until June would allow us to still host the event but we do not feel it is in the best interest of our staff or community to hold a large gathering at this point. As we move into the yellow phase large gatherings are still limited to a 25 person maximum and we want the vigil to be a space for as many community members to come together as possible.
Address: 3399 Chestnut Drive, Allentown, PA 18104
