Attorney General Holder Launches Public Awareness Campaign To Support Drug Endangered Children

June 14, 2011

On May 31, 2011, Attorney General Eric Holder launched a public awareness campaign to bring attention to the challenges faced by children and families affected by drug abuse and highlight work performed across the country that addresses these issues. The campaign is being sponsored by the Federal Interagency Drug Endangered Children Task Force, which has additionally created a website to provide information on how to identify, respond to, and provide services to drug endangered children.

Holder remarked, "This public awareness campaign will highlight the risks posed to drug endangered children across the country and empower communities to better serve children exposed to drug abuse, trafficking, and addiction by their parent or childcare provider."
