The Attorney General is urging professionals (teachers, couselors, social work staff, etc.) to use a new resource site launched by the Defending Childhood Initiative called, “Take Action To Protect Children.” The website’s goal is to assist professionals in their efforts to address children’s exposure to violence. The site includes several resources such as tips, publications, and hotline numbers. The site also has a database of programs and services that assist with violence exposure.
The Defending Childhood Initiative was launched in September 2010 as a way for the Department of Justice to lessen children’s exposure to violence.
