How Can Membership in Safe States Benefit You?

On Safe States Trainings & Workshops

"Being involved in the Safe States Alliance gives you access to incredible resources, including year-round trainings and professional development activities focused on a variety of injury and violence prevention topics. Whether you’re interested in enhancing your program evaluation skills, learning about initiatives to prevent teen dating violence, or developing policies to promote pedestrian and bicycle safety, it’s clear that Safe States has something for everyone!”

John Lundell
Deputy Director
University of Iowa Injury Prevention Research Center


On Safe States Support for Local Health

"As a Safe States member, I have been provided a wealth of knowledge and experts within the injury prevention community. As a member of Safe States, I learned about the Safe Communities designation and worked with our local community and are now a Safe Community. There are wonderful professionals in this membership and are always willing to help with any injury type information or situation. It is a wonderful organization."

Tina Johnson, MPH, RN
Administrative Director, Pottawatomie, Seminole, Hughes, and Okfuskee County Health Departments (OK)

On Safe States Technical Assistance
"Serving on a State Technical Assistance Team (STAT) is hands down the best professional development in injury prevention available.  It not only increases your ability as a writer and synthesizer of information, but it also allows you to learn about another state's injury prevention program in depth. It also enables you to work with a group of diverse colleagues, all of whom have a love of injury prevention.”

Rhonda Siegel
Program Manager
Injury Prevention Program, New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services


On Safe States Advocacy Efforts

"With our challenging fiscal environment, there has never been a more urgent time to strengthen our policy approaches and advocate for injury and violence prevention. The Safe States Alliance's advocacy efforts are more important than ever to ensure that injury and violence prevention are national policy priorities.”
