Featured Resource: Task Force on American Indian and Alaska Native Children Exposed to Violence
At the 2013 White House Tribal Nations Conference, former Attorney General Eric Holder announced the creation of the Attorney General’s Task Force on American Indian and Alaska Native Children Exposed to Violence. This task force examined the scope and impact of violence facing American Indian and Alaska Native children and submitted its final report and policy recommendations (PDF) on ways to address it. It was part of the Attorney General’s Defending Childhood Initiative, a project that is working to solve the epidemic levels of exposure to violence faced by our nation’s children. Task force members included a federal working group and an advisory committee of experts. OJP was represented on the Task Force by staff including Beth McGarry, Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General, along with several other OJP staff and OJP visiting fellows.
