Victims Who Choose to Become Advocates: Moving Forward and Healing One’s Self

FREE EVENT!! for National Victims of Crime Awareness Week

Victims Who Choose to Become Advocates: Moving Forward and Healing One’s Self

When: Wednesday, April 25, 2012, 7:00 – 9:30 pm
Where: Council Chambers, Mission Municipal Hall
8645 Stave Lake St, Mission, British Columbia, Canada

This forum will feature Marjean Fichtenberg and Ray King, both of whom lost children to homicide. Marjean’s son, Dennis, was murdered in 1993 by a parolee named Paul Butler. Ray King’s son Ray Jr. was murdered in 1981 by Clifford Olson. Both Marjean and Ray will share their personal journeys towards healing and how advocating for other victims has affected their understanding of “moving forward.”

  • What does it take to “get on with your life” in the aftermath of losing a child or someone very dear to homicide?
  • How does a victim who has suffered such a devastating loss move forward?
  • How would a victim know if they are “moving forward” or not?
