Ending Violence so Children Can Thrive

Report Highlights Recommendations of Attorney General's Advisory Committee on American Indian and Alaska Native Children Exposed to Violence

The Attorney General's Advisory Committee on American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) Children Exposed to Violence has released its final report of findings and policy recommendations to address the impact of violence on tribal youth. The report commissioned as part of Attorney General Eric Holder's Defending Childhood Initiative serves as a blueprint for protecting AI/AN children exposed to violence. The recommendations are a culmination of information gathered through four public hearings held between December 2013 and June 2014.
