Each year, more than 53,000 Americans die violent deaths. We need solid data to help us inform prevention strategies and reduce the toll.

Housed in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS) can help. The National Violence Prevention Network is a broad coalition of public health officials, anti-violence organizations and law enforcement groups working to get NVDRS completed and fully funded. Here’s how you can help.
