Safe States Alliance acknowledges the perpetual injustices that racism inflicts on the communities we serve. We commit to promoting racial healing and racial equity in our organizational policies, practices, and values. Learn more about our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Safe States is actively working to dismantle the generations-long social, economic, and environmental inequities that result in adverse health outcomes, including injuries and violence. While health equity has long been a priority for Safe States, in recent years we’ve placed additional emphasis on that commitment, commissioning and facilitating the Anti-racism and Health Equity Work Group, providing equity-related professional development opportunities and resources, and aligning our 2022-2024 strategic priorities around elevating the field of injury and violence prevention (IVP) through an anti-racism and health equity lens.
