CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - T-shirts with messages from survivors of domestic and sexual violence were on display as New Hampshire officials gathered for Crime Victims’ Rights Day.

Speaking at a Concord news conference Tuesday, Attorney General Joseph Foster said he is proud that New Hampshire has been a leader in establishing and protecting victims’ rights. Gov. Maggie Hassan recognized survivors of crimes and said the state must do the best it can to prevent crime from happening in the first place.

Jeff Furlone was honored for his work on behalf of sexual assault victims at Plymouth State University. Also honored was Abby Tassell, assistant director of a crisis center in Lebanon.

A memorial service was scheduled for Tuesday evening to honor those who have died or have been traumatized by violent crime.
