The National Organization for Victim Assistance has terminated its contract with the Sheraton/Le Meridien Hotel in Charlotte, North Carolina to host its 42nd Annual Training Event. NOVA’s decision to relocate our annual training event is a direct result of legislation recently enacted in North Carolina which contradicts NOVA’s mission and commitment to champion dignity and equality for all victims and survivors of crime. The enactment of this legislation has resulted in numerous states and local governments placing a ban on travel to the NOVA Training Event. We apologize for any inconvenience these circumstances may have created. We are proud and excited to invite you to join us at our new site at the Westin Peachtree Plaza in Atlanta, Georgia for a unique training event which will promote compassion and inclusiveness for all.
– Chief Justice Richard Barajas (Ret.), Executive Director
