The Victims' Assistance Legal Organization, Inc. (VALOR), a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, was established in 1979 by the late Frank G. Carrington, one of the early proponents of victims' rights. It was his intention that the organization provide leadership on issues related to the rights of crime victims in America. Carrington has often been referred to as the "father of the crime victims' rights movement in America," and VALOR has consistently pursued the vision that was his trademark.

VALOR works to advance victims' rights through public policy efforts on the federal, state, and local levels. Through the promotion of education and awareness about the rights and needs of crime victims, the organization works to improve services for victims to assist in their emotional, financial, and physical recovery. VALOR accomplishes its mission through support from private and corporate foundations, government grants, and individual contributions.
