This issue's Message From the Acting Administrator details OJJDP's commitment to safeguard American Indian and Alaska Native children from victimization and support tribes in implementing culturally specific, trauma-informed measures to help them heal. The top story highlights OJJDP's participation in the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges' 80th Annual Conference—including sessions presenting agency research on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders, supporting male survivors of violence, and juvenile justice trends. Other features announce additional OJJDP support for tribal youth, AMBER Alert coordinators and clearinghouse managers, police committed to improving interactions with youth, OJJDP's first Multi-System Trauma-Informed Collaborative meeting, the Juvenile Drug Treatment Court Guidelines, OJJDP research resources and agency-commissioned data on restorative justice principles, and the Healing of the Canoe Program's efforts to help tribal youth connect to their communities and cultures to prevent suicide and substance abuse.
