Working to empower and advance the safety of victims through legal representation and educational outreach.
Every victim has comprehensive and enforceable rights as a stakeholder in the justice process.
Every victim has access to legal assistance to be able to enforce those rights.
The CVHR’s values are reflected in the organizational seal.
The main part of the CVHR’s seal is the directional compass, reminding us that our mission is not limited, but rather requires us to think creatively to work toward the correct solution. The compass is sharp-pointed because it reminds us that our work is often difficult but nevertheless important.
The red in the directional compass and the lettering represents courage to do what is right, and the yellow represents that we should always uphold the highest ethical ideals.
The scales represent the balance of justice; we remind ourselves that while our goals are to take care of the client, we must balance this with ethical considerations and notions of justice generally.
The CVHR seal is on a blue background because blue symbolizes justice. It represents the ideal that all people everywhere would like to see a just world.
