TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas crime victims and a host of other advocates and public officials are rallying for victims' rights as part of a national awareness effort.

Friday's event starts at noon on the south side of the Kansas Statehouse. Several victims are scheduled to speak about their experiences.

Others on the program include Department of Corrections Secretary Ray Roberts and Dorthy Stucky Halley, victim services director for the Kansas attorney general's office.

Following the rally, participants will hold a walk around the Statehouse grounds to promote increased rights for victims of crimes.

The event coincides with National Crime Victims' Rights Week, which ends Saturday.
