Violence Prevention and Social Media


CDC’s VetoViolence is a social media community for preventing all types of violence.

Using Facebook and Twitter to Raise Awareness about Violence Prevention

As a part of CDC’s Injury Center, the Division of Violence Prevention works to prevent violence and its consequences, which includes sharing the importance of prevention to all of our audiences where they engage in discussions. Social media, like Facebook and Twitter, plays an important role in our outreach and interactions.

Our fans and followers can keep up with our most recent research,videos, new articles, and prevention resources on social media. Fans also have opportunities to interact with our experts in real time, through coordinated events and chats. In recognition of national violence prevention observances, we have opened up our VetoViolence Facebook page to live events and Q&As and participate in important conversations through the Injury Center’s @CDCInjury Twitter account. We encourage you to follow us on social media and join in conversations with others interested in effective violence prevention.

Help CDC stop violence before it begins. We invite you to follow CDC’s Injury Center on Twitter  and to join the discussion on Facebook. Together, we can make a difference.
