Over a period of several months, seven Federal agencies met to study and discuss the national problem of violence, especially youth violence, and to determine how best to assist states and communities in dealing with this volatile subject. One result of these discussions was a national conference to focus attention on the many programs being tried across the nation that held some promise of success. This document provides transcript of conference proceedings. Speakers included (in order): Madeleine Kunin; Peter Edelman; Laurie Robinson; Janet Reno; Ralph Green; J. David Hawkins; Hillary Rodham Clinton; Deborah Prothrow-Stith; Kelly Zimmerman; Ernesto Cortes, Jr.; Albert Gore, Jr.; Bill Clinton; John A. Calhoun; and Carl Upchurch. Workshops held were: The Individual and the Community; Home and Family; Schools and Communities; and Community and Neighborhood. Proceedings from a Town Hall Meeting are also included. Appendices include a list of speakers and addresses, conference planning committee names and addresses, and an executive summary of the community planning sessions. (JBJ)
