What is MediaViolence.org?

The Media Violence Resource Center is the best source available for parents, teachers, pediatricians and other professionals interfacing with families to understand the impacts of violence in television, movies, video games and the internet.

The Media Violence Resource Center exists to highlight the impacts, research, and media coverage related to the usage of violent media by children and adults. Our primary goal is to show public health officials and the criminal justice system  that violent media and violent video games are a factor to be considered as a cause of violence, and warrants further research and public awareness.

Additionally, we strive to be the best source available for parents, teachers, pediatricians and other professionals interfacing with families to understand the impacts of violence in television, movies, video games and the internet. Children are inundated with media violence in all forms like never before. Ultimately, it is parents who determine what kids will watch and play. But grandparents, teachers, counselors and medical professionals have a responsibility to be aware of how media violence impacts children.

We hope that by providing the best resources and education available on the subject of media violence, this generation of parents can help prevent the devastating impacts that media violence is having on this generation of children.
