On June 20th Jolie spoke at the annual AG meeting in Anchorage Alaska. With the issue of child sexual abuse on top of mind of all Americans but especially on those who are responsible for law enforcement and criminal justice, Jolie called on the AGs to use their voice and influence to get others in their state involved in prevention and to insist that youth serving organization’s use education and policy to raise the bar in how we care for our children. Jolie impressed upon them that the time is now; that people are ready to support a change. Our job is to help them see what change is possible. AGs can help by making this issue a priority in their states.
Following Jolie’s comments, Deputy Attorney General Patty Dailey Lewis shared how AG Beau Biden had that vision for Delaware and how they are making it happen in their state.
