National Injury Prevention Day
November 18th, the Injury Free Coalition for Kids and the country's leading injury and violence prevention organizations will join forces to push for change. Their efforts will mark the country's 3rd "National Injury Prevention Day," a day to raise awareness to empower communities to make a difference.
Our Safe Kids Coalition has asked organizations throughout our catchment to support this day by "shining a green light" to raise awareness for injury prevention.
