Marsy’s Law for Florida Celebrates National Night Out in Central Florida

WHAT:           Marsy’s Law for Florida, the organization advocating for crime victims’ rights through Amendment 6, will join 11 communities across Central Florida on Tuesday, October 2, in celebrating National Night Out, a movement which aims to strengthen relationships between neighborhoods and law enforcement by coming together for a fun-filled night featuring block parties, entertainment, exhibitors, safety demonstrations, food and more. Victims’ rights advocates will be available to speak with members of the media about how Amendment 6 strengthens protections for crime victims without weakening or altering any of the rights currently afforded to those accused or convicted of a crime. Events with a Marsy’s Law for Florida presence include those in Longwood, Clermont, Lake Mary, Sanford, Caselberry, MetroWest, Mount Dora, Hunter’s Creek, Orlo Vista and South Apopka.

About Marsy’s Law

Marsy’s Law is named after Marsalee “Marsy” Nicholas of California who was stalked and killed by her ex-boyfriend in 1983. Only one week after her death, Marsy’s mother and brother, Henry T. Nicholas, walked into a grocery store where they were confronted by the accused murderer. The family, who had just come from a visit to Marsy’s grave, was unaware that the accused had been released on bail.  In an effort to honor his sister, Dr. Nicholas, co-founder of Broadcom Corporation, has made it his mission to give victims and their families constitutional protections and equal rights. He formed Marsy’s Law for All in 2009, providing expertise and resources to victims’ rights organizations nationwide.
