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 North Carolina’s House Bill 2, discriminatory legislation which contradicts NOVA’s mission and commitment to champion dignity and equality for all victims and survivors of crime. 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
