State By State Advocacy
         
 

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 that worked to expand NVDRS nationwide and continues to advocate for gun violence prevention research. Here’s how you can help.
