On January 25, our founder Miriam Shehane celebrates another birthday. Miriam is the reason victims of crime have rights in Alabama. Because of her work, victims now have the opportunity to have their voices heard. While many people complained about how unfair the criminal justice system was, Miriam decided to make a difference and change the laws. We thank you, Miriam!
The staff at Vocal Angel House are very grateful for our founder!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MIRIAM!!! ️
"Across the country on January 9th each year, citizens take the lead to show support on National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. Law Enforcement Officers of every rank and file have chosen a profession that puts their life on the line every day for their communities. Vocal appreciates the officials that strive every day to make the process a little easier for victims. We appreciate you!"
Vocal continues to remember our fallen officers of 2019. Gone but not forgotten.
The State of Alabama is hurting for the family of Aniah Blanchard. Her beautiful life was taken senselessly, and way too soon. We are grateful for the hard work Lee County District Attorney, Brandon Hughes, and his office has done to ensure justice will be served. Please continue to keep her family and friends in your thoughts and prayers. If anyone needs Vocal’s assistance please contact us at 334-262-7197 or 1-800-239-3219.
Every April, OVC leads communities throughout the country in their annual observances of NCVRW.
This year, OVC commemorated NCVRW on April 7–13. This year's NCVRW theme—Honoring Our Past. Creating Hope for the Future.—celebrates the progress made by those before us as we look to a future of crime victim services that is even more inclusive, accessible, and trauma-informed. Vocal's annual candlelight vigil was held on April 12th, 2019 at 7 pm on the lawn of the Attorney General's office. The guest speakers were Chief Ernest Finley & Attorney General Steve Marshall. Many individuals who have continuously helped fight for crime victim's right's were honored that night.
