State By State Advocacy

The National Violence Prevention Network is a broad-based coalition of local, state, and national organizations dedicated to violent death prevention by advocating for the full implementation of the National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS) in the United States.

Network members work together to generate support for NVDRS among policy-makers, the general public and other national organizations by educating them on the benefits of placing multi-source incident data collected on violent deaths in a central, state-level repository. Such activity would enable each state to design and implement prevention programs aimed at combating violent deaths.

Founded by members of an ad hoc group that has supported NVDRS since its inception in 2002, the Network was formally established in 2007.
