Joe Cannata

  • Joe  Cannata  has  been  working  on  victim  issues  since  1987  when  his  daughter,  Lynn  Cannata,  was  murdered  by  her  boyfriend.  He  has  been  instrumental  in  having five  victim  rights  laws  passed  including  “Lynn’s  Law “ in  2004  (named  after  his  daughter)  which    requires  violent  offenders  to  serve  75%  of  their  sentence  before  being  eligible  for  parole.    Joe  and  his  wife,  Kaye,  sold  their  dry  cleaning  business  of 31 years, in 2007,  to  devote  100%  of  their  time  to  their  newly  formed  non-profit  organization,  Voices  Of  Victims,  which   offers  post-sentencing  support  and  advocacy  to  victims  of  violent  crime.
