Task Force Examines Exposure to Violence

Posted: Updated:

A public hearing of a new task force examines the impact of exposure to violence on American Indian and Alaska Native children. The task force is anchored by both a federal working group and an advisory committee.

Four public hearings will be held across the country. The first hearing will be held in Bismarck on December 9, and will focus on violence in children's homes, schools and communities in Indian country.

The advisory committee will be co-chaired by former U.S. Senator Byron Dorgan and Iroquois composer and singer Joanne Shenandoah. They will be aided by tribal members and national experts on American Indian studies, child health and trauma, and child welfare and law.
