On May 24, 2011, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) released a new public service announcement (PSA) to raise awareness about the problem of children's exposure to violence and about the Attorney General's Defending Childhood initiative. Launched in September 2010, the initiative aims to prevent children's exposure to violence, mitigate the negative effects experienced by children exposed to violence, and develop knowledge
about and spread awareness of this issue.
