State By State Advocacy

The National Violence Prevention Network is a broad coalition dedicated to building awareness for the National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS) and expanding the NVDRS to all 50 states, U.S. territories and the District of Columbia.

Currently, NVDRS operates in 42 states. Two additional states, Tennessee and Texas , have been approved for participation in NVDRS, but have not been funded. The remaining  states continue to express interest in joining NVDRS.

More than three-quarters of the country have NVDRS coverage, leaving 10 states without the ability to learn about trends in their state and share vital data that provides a clear direction for violence prevention policies.
