Teen Dating Violence Is A ‘Cabinet-Level Priority,’ Attorney General Holder SaysAre there any local issues that the Obama administration refuses to meddle in simply because they're none of the federal government's business?
(CNSNews.com) - Stemming teen dating violence and safeguarding children is a "Cabinet-level priority" of the Obama administration, Attorney General Eric Holder told a gathering at the Justice Department on Friday.
[...] "That’s what the National Advisory Committee -- and today’s meeting – is all about. By working together, I believe we can empower adolescents to understand and to develop healthy relationships before violence and abuse can begin. And I am confident that we can help more young people identify signs of abuse, and assist them in locating services."
The goal of Friday's meeting is to work on a "strategic, comprehensive action plan," Holder said in his prepared remarks.
