Note from Our Director
Dear Partners,

Happy New Year! As we begin 2022, we at CSN are reenergized by the learning and fortitude we experienced with all of you during the past year. Our resilience will strengthen our commitment and our partnerships to ensure all infants, children, and youth grow up safe and healthy.

CSN is starting the new year with two upcoming webinars in January. The first is our State Technical Assistance Webinar (STAW) on January 20th. This STAW will focus on infant, child, and adolescent death review. Abby Collier, a Children’s Safety Now Alliance (CSN-A) member and Director of the National Center for Fatality Review and Prevention, will present on child fatality review data visualizations. States will share their experience with child fatality and fetal and infant mortality teams.

The second webinar, Keeping Kids Safe in Automated Vehicles: Key Considerations, will be held on January 26th. Join this webinar to hear more on this evolving and timely topic from two of our nation’s leading experts. Kristy Brinker Brouwer, Kettering University and Joe Colella, Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association will share their knowledge and answer your questions about children and autonomous vehicles. The webinar will be moderated by Morag MacKay of Safe Kids Worldwide, and an active member of the Children’s Safety Now Alliance.

Please widely share the below resources with your networks. Throughout this newsletter, you will find resources from our Children's Safety Now Alliance partners highlighted in purple.

New CSN Resource:
Teen Driving Safety 2022 Resource Guide
In 2019, 4,356 people were killed in crashes involving young drivers (aged 15 - 20). Teenagers contribute to, and suffer from, the consequences of motor vehicle collisions at a disproportionate rate. Teen drivers ages 16 - 19 are nearly three times as likely as drivers aged 20 or older to be in a fatal crash. These crashes are preventable. CSN’s Teen Driving Safety 2022 Resource Guide provides information on proven strategies to increase young driver safety, as well as the safety of all road users.
