Defending Childhood: Protect, Health, Thrive

Defending Childhood Initiative, US Department of Justice

The Attorney General commissioned a task force of diverse leaders dedicated to protecting children from exposure to violence and to healing those who were exposed. The report calls for action by the federal government, states, tribes, communities, and the private sector across the country to marshal the best available knowledge and all of the resources needed to defend all of our children against exposure to violence. The Attorney General’s task force asks all readers of this report to imagine a safe country for our children’s creative, healthy development and to join together in developing a national plan to foster that reality.
