The Task Force has conducted listening sessions across the country to learn how violence and abuse are affecting kids and communities, and is working to compile a report to be issued late 2012.

NCCD provides technical assistance to the Task Force and will support the creation of the final report, which will serve as a blueprint for preventing children’s exposure to violence and for reducing the negative effects experienced by children exposed to violence across the United States.
