Kern County's 5th Annual Crime Victims' Rights March is scheduled for April 4 in front of the downtown courthouse. 

At 4 p.m., informational tables and displays will be set up. Speakers will begin talking at 5 p.m., and the march will start at 5:30 p.m., beginning at the Liberty Bell in front of the courthouse and ending at Mill Creek, where a vigil will follow. 

This year's theme is "Strength Resilience Justice."

"While we are honoring all victims, it is especially important for our community to know that we have not forgotten the loved ones who have been taken from us," a District Attorney's office release said. 

Anyone with questions is asked to call Chief Deputy District Attorney Mark Pafford at the DA's office at 868-2340.
