A Message From Attorney General Eric Holder
I am happy to tell you about an important upcoming event in the fight to prevent and reduce children's exposure to violence in the United States. Last month we established the Attorney General's National Task Force on Children Exposed to Violence, composed of leading experts from diverse fields and perspectives. The Task Force will spend the next year examining the extent and nature of the problem of childhood exposure to violence in the U.S. and identifying policies and promising practices to address it.
