Attorney General Urges Professionals To Take Action on Children's Exposure To Violence

March 2, 2012

The Attorney General's Defending Childhood Initiative has launched a new Web page to support professionals in their efforts to address children's exposure to violence. The Web page, "Take Action To Protect Children," provides online resources, tips, hotline numbers, and a personal call to action tailored for professionals in various fields who work with children who experience or witness violence. Attorney General Holder launched Defending Childhood in September 2010 to unify the Department of Justice's efforts to mitigate children's exposure to violence under one initiative.
