The Attorney General's National Task Force on Children Exposed to Violence, a key component of the Department's Defending Childhood Initiative, will hold its third of four public hearings in Miami, FL on March 1921, 2012. The task force is examining the epidemic of children's exposure to violence as witnesses or victims and identifying policies and promising practices to address it.
The Miami hearing will focus on children's exposure to violence in their communities and at school. The Defending Childhood Task Force is interested in hearing from community members and professionals who work with children and families who have experienced violence and from directly impacted individuals. Written testimony may be submitted anytime through April 24, 2012.
