SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

This hearing is being convened to provide information to the AIAN Advisory Committee about the issue of American Indian/Alaska Native children's exposure to violence. The focus for this second hearing will be on the juvenile systems' (Tribal, State, Federal) response to American Indian/Alaska Native children exposed to violence.

The final agenda is subject to adjustment, but it is anticipated that on February 11, 2014, there will be a morning and afternoon session, with a break for lunch. The morning session will likely include welcoming remarks and introductions, and panel presentations from invited guests on topics focused on the juvenile systems' (Tribal, State, Federal) response to American Indian/Alaska Native children exposed to violence. The afternoon session will likely include presentations from witnesses invited to brief the AIAN Advisory Committee on measuring and describing American Indian/Alaska Native children's exposure to violence and existing programs that attempt to address this issue.

Scheduled oral public testimony will likely be offered at specific times during both the morning and afternoon hearing sessions. Additionally, oral public testimony may occur during the open microphone session, which will likely occur just prior to the conclusion of the hearing.
