Join us in Changing Minds about Children’s Exposure to Violence

In October 2016, the Department of Justice (DOJ) launched Changing Minds, a national public education campaign to raise awareness, teach skills, and prompt public action in response to children’s exposure to violence in the U.S. This multiyear campaign, established through DOJ’s Defending Childhood Initiative, features digital and print content intended to reach adults who interact with children and youth in grades K–12. ChangingMindsImageThe new campaign website,, provides resources and tips on how to support children who may have been affected by violence.

The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention developed Changing Minds in partnership with Futures Without Violence, the Ad Council and the Wunderman ad agency. Our agencies are working together to spread the word and we need your help. Research indicates that proper intervention, including support from caring adults, can help children heal. With this in mind, we encourage you to use these resources and share this message with your networks. Together we can continue #ChangingMinds.
