WICHITA – (May 11, 2017) – Dung Kimble of Step Stones was recognized for her service to crime victims during this week’s Crime Victim’s Rights Conference in Wichita.
Kimble was presented the Outstanding Community-Based Victim Advocate Award by Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt during an awards ceremony this morning.
“Dung is a creative out-of-the-box thinker and as a result has crafted new relationships and new services,” said Kit Lamberts, Executive Director of Step Stones. “She designed a pocket card to be used by law enforcement to provide on the scene information about domestic violence and sexual assault services in Wichita-Sedgwick County area as well as a series of questions which help determine the patterns of abuse.”
The Kansas Crime Victims Rights Conference was hosted by Attorney General Schmidt and Governor Sam Brownback. The conference featured a number of speakers and trainers focused on raising awareness of emerging crimes and offering new approaches to respond to enduring crimes, such as child abuse, domestic violence and human trafficking.
