Supporting Survivors

This April, the Washington County District Attorney's Office is joining our community and law enforcement partners to honor Child Abuse Prevention Month, Sexual Assault Awareness Month and National Crime Victims’ Rights Week.

We’ve worked with our colleagues to develop a number of events throughout the month to show support for crime victims and to assure them that help is available. Please review our calendar to see all the events taking place during April.

Honoring Child Abuse Prevention Month

As we continue to deal with COVID-19 we are taking our Pinwheels for Prevention campaign digital. Please download these pinwheel sheets, color them in as a family and display them in your window for all to see. Be sure to snap a photo and share it to social media using #GreatChildhooods. You can also build your own pinwheel to display in your yards. 

On April 26, 2021, experts with CARES Northwest are conducting an Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) Training. That training is available to the public and will be streamed live via the Washington County District Attorney's Office Facebook page.


In honor of Child Abuse Prevention Month we are working with our partners at the Washington County Sheriff's Office and CARES Northwest to help prevent child abuse and neglect. 

If you have stopped by the Washington County Courthouse lately, you may have noticed our new display on the front lawn.

In conjunction with Prevent Child Abuse Oregon, we have assembled a Pinwheels for Prevention display in honor of Child Abuse Prevention Month. The campaign symbol, a blue and silver pinwheel, is a reminder of the happy childhoods and bright futures that all children deserve.

You can also design your own pinwheel to put up in your window or yard. To learn more on how to show you support for this effort click our links above. 

Honoring National Crime Victims' Rights Week

We would like to thank the Washington County Board of Commissioners for their support. On April 6th, 2021, commissioners will approve this proclamation in support of National Crime Victims' Rights Week.

On April 20, 2021, we hosted a virtual community roundtable discussion. Representatives from the Washington County District Attorney’s Office, Tigard Police Department, CARES Northwest, the Family Justice Center of Washington County, Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization and the Domestic Violence Resource Center all gathered virtually to discuss resources available to crime victims.
