The California Victim Compensation Board (CalVCB), the University of Oregon Police Department and the Oregon Department of Justice are hosting a conference to share best practices on mass violence response from September 5-7, 2018 in Eugene, Oregon.
This year’s Leave No Victim Behind conference is the third in a series begun in April 2016, which focuses on bringing community, government and law enforcement entities together to better serve crime victims through education and training. The 2018 event includes presentations on the Route 91 Harvest Festival concert shooting in Las Vegas, the First Baptist Church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas and the shooting at the Pathway Home in Yountville, California, among others.
The opening keynote speaker is Samantha Fuentes, a survivor of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Florida. In addition, the conference will provide technical training sessions on the federal Office for Victims of Crime mass violence response toolkit and best practices for creating local integrated crisis response plans.
