Building a safety advocacy coalition

Traffic Safety Pulse News

This strategy calls for the creation of a safety coalition that can coordinate programs, implement actions, and advocate for policy changes. Government agencies are unable to lobby, so this coalition serves as the proactive voice for broader statewide policy changes. The benefits are two-fold: increasing the visibility of key safety issues and establishing a space for collaboration among safety groups.

To make progress on this strategy, we need your help. We are looking for leaders in the safety space to participate in the development of safety action teams and assist in the implementation of the 15 Tier I strategies. If you are interested in participating, please contact Manjari Bhat, Colorado’s Safety Champion at [email protected].
