June 7, 2013
Contact: Kath Cummins, 202.590.0837, kcummins@ncvc.org

Yesterday's senseless shooting rampage by a gunman in Santa Monica have left yet another community in America coping with grief, trauma and horrific injuries in the wake of a mass crime.

The National Center for Victims of Crime extends our thoughts and prayers to those victims, their families and friends, and to the first responders whose efforts saved lives and prevented more deaths and injuries.

"These victims could be any one of us," said Mai Fernandez, Executive Director of the National Center. "Each one will need the sustained support of their communities to deal with their physical and mental injuries, and begin the process of rebuilding their lives."

The National Center for Victims of Crime, established in 1985, is the nation’s leading resource and advocacy organization for crime victims and those who serve them. For more than 25 years, the National Center has led this nation’s struggle to provide crime victims with the rights, protections, and services they need to rebuild their lives.
