National Task Force on Children Exposed to Violence
A part of the Defending Childhood initiative, the task force held one of four public hearings to gather expert and community testimony on children’s exposure to violence. Additional hearings from Albuquerque, NM; Miami, FL; and Detroit, MI will help the task force identify promising practices, programs, and community strategies to prevent and respond to children’s exposure to violence.
