    Hopefully you've heard that November 18, 2021 is National Injury Prevention Day!

    On that Thursday, the Injury Free Coalition for Kids and the country's leading injury and violence prevention organizations will join forces for the 2nd annual "National Injury Prevention Day," a day designed to raise awareness about the burden of injury, violence and a need for change.

    Safe States has joined forces with doctors, nurses, and community outreach personnel at Trauma Centers across the country as well as other national organizations like Safe Kids Worldwide, the American Trauma Society, the American Academy of Pediatrics, Everytown for Gun Safety, the Society for Advancement of Violence and Injury Research, the Trauma Center Association of America and Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association Cares.

    We want to know how you will celebrate and bring awareness that prevention matters and WORKS!

    There is still time to plan an event or observance and encourage your partners to participate. You can access resources and submit your event here at injuryfree.org 

    And we would love to know what you have planned. Comment here and tell your colleagues and don't forget to share photos with Safe States.
