SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Coordinating Council on Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (“Council”), established by statute in the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 1974, section 206(a) (42 U.S.C. 5616(a)), will meet to carry out its advisory functions. Documents such as meeting announcements, agendas, minutes, and reports will be available on the Council's Web page, www.juvenilecouncil.gov where you may also obtain information on the meeting.

Although designated agency representatives may attend, the Council membership consists of the Attorney General (Chair), the Administrator of the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (Vice Chair), the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Secretary of Labor (DOL), the Secretary of Education (DOE), the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy, the Chief Executive Officer of the Corporation for National and Community Service, and the Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The nine additional members are appointed by the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, the U.S. Senate Majority Leader, and the President of the United States. Other federal agencies take part in Council activities, including the Departments of Agriculture, Defense, Interior, and the Substance and Mental Health Services Administration of HHS.

Meeting Agenda: At this meeting, the Council will be joined by the Advisory Committee of the Attorney General's Task Force on American Indian and Alaska Native (AIAN) Children Exposed to Violence. Task Force Advisory Committee members will publicly release the findings and recommendations of their report to the Attorney General and members of the Coordinating Council. During the meeting, Council members will be afforded the opportunity to discuss these findings and recommendations with the Advisory Committee members.

The Attorney General's Task Force on AIAN Children Exposed to Violence is anchored by an Advisory Committee consisting of non-federal experts in the area of AIAN children exposed to violence and a Federal Working Group consisting of federal experts working in areas related to AIAN children exposed to violence. The Advisory Committee acts in accordance with the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act as amended, 5 U.S.C. Appendix 2; and is charged specifically with investigating the issues of AIAN children exposed to violence in their homes, schools, and communities. To this end, the committee convened four public hearings across the country to collect information with the primary goal of developing policy and practice recommendations to be included in their final report to the Attorney General.

In summary, the agenda will include: (a) Welcome and introductions; (b) Presentations and discussion of the findings and recommendations of the Advisory Committee of the Attorney General's Task Force on American Indian and Alaska Native (AIAN) Children Exposed to Violence; and (c) and Agency/Practitioner Member announcements of pertinent programs and activities.
