1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men will be a victim of domestic violence in their lifetime, according to the CDC. Safe Horizon is the nation’s leading victim services organization and we have been helping New Yorkers navigate their options and advocating for domestic violence survivors for more than four decades.
In 2015, we launched a social media campaign to raise awareness of this issues called Put The Nail In It. Several notable celebrities lent their voice to the campaign through the years and the idea was simple, supporters would paint their ring finger fingernail purple, the color of the domestic violence movement, take a picture of the painted fingernail and post this on social media, and donate to Safe Horizon. Supporters from several countries and from all 50 states of the United States participated.
Safe Horizon remains committed to helping people in New York City affected by all forms of violence and crime.
