Abstract: The U.S. Department of Justice, OJJDP and other Federal agencies are working on many fronts to help youth affected by a parent’s incarceration to access the supports and services they need. A 1-day listening session at the White House on September 30, 2013 was part of this effort. At the National Forum on Youth Violence Prevention’s third annual summit on September 26-27, 2013, administration officials, congressmen, mayors, police chiefs, community advocates, and youth from 10 cities shared their strategies for reducing and mitigating the impact of violence on the Nation’s youth. On September 25, 2013, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) and the National Research Council’s (NRC’s) Committee on Commercial Sexual Exploitation and Sex Trafficking of Minors in the United States released their final report, which outlines the findings of a study of this issue in the United States. On September 23, 2013, OJJDP announced grant awards of just over $8 million to reduce youth violence in six sites under OJJDP‘s Community-based Violence Prevention program. OJJDP has released its latest National Survey of Children’s Exposure to Violence (NatSCEV). Survey results show the co-occurrence of victimization and delinquency among children exposed to violence.
