This April, Safe Kids California, in partnership with Safe Kids Alameda, is celebrating Safe Kids Day. We'll start the month on April 6 with a table at the Oakland A’s Stadium as part of a Little League pre-game event. Then on April 26 we will move to UC Berkeley Albany Village from 10 am to 1 pm with a car seat check-up event and many more fun family activities and prize raffle. Both events will raise awareness about how we can work together to protect children from preventable injuries. Join us at O.co Stadium or U.C. Berkeley (1125 Jackson Street, Albany) or participate with us online here. Please help us raise funds to support our state, local and national injury prevention programs.
Safe Kids California is growing and making a difference! Over ten years, California has seen:
- 72% decrease in deaths to children in motor vehicles.
- 52% decrease in child pedestrian deaths.
These successes were in part due to our activities. We advocated for stronger legislation, educated families and providers, distributed child safety seats and booster seats, translated safety information into multiple languages.
Safe Kids California is one of 43 state coalitions across the U.S. that bring together health and safety experts, police, firefighters, paramedics, doctors, nurses, teachers, business owners, and others to protect children and families. We support local Safe Kids coalitions across the state to conduct community outreach, distribute safety products, educate and advocate for injury prevention.
Please help us continue to grow so that more children can grow up injury-free!
With your help, we can raise awareness and support life-saving programs to protect kids from injuries.
