We have obtained total and polarized intensity images of 15 AGNs with the VLBA at 7 mm at 17 epochs, accompanied at many epochs by nearly simultaneous measurements of polarization at 1.35/0.85 mm and at optical wavelengths. Analysis of the data shows an obvious connection between the polarized emission at high frequencies and the most strongly polarized features in parsec-scale jets. The largest deviations between polarization parameters at different frequencies are detected when a new compact knot emerges from the core, and are likely caused by very short time-scale (<1 week) polarization variability during the events.
