Starting Point Supports Marcy’s Law

The Starting Point staff was recently visited by field organizer Marina Altschiller from Marsy’s Law NH to discuss the statewide initiative for a constitutional amendment to provide equal rights for crime victims. New Hampshire is one of only 15 states that does not extend enumerated rights to victims of crime. The Marsy’s Law initiative hopes to elevate key rights of crime victims into the state’s Constitution to ensure victims have rights equal in stature to the accused and convicted.
