The singer and actress, who recently revealed her own experience surviving abuse, visited a Safe Horizon shelter in New York City Wednesday before attending the organization’s Champion Awards. There, Kramer was presented with the Voice of Empowerment Award for telling her story openly, as well as working with Safe Horizon on their national anti-domestic violence campaign, #PutTheNailinIt.
Ring fingernail purple to end domestic violence! Safe Horizon’s #PutTheNailInIt campaign brings awareness to the fact that although 1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence, 67 percent have never discussed the issue with their friends. By painting your left fingernail purple, you can show support and help open a conversation.
With survivors of domestic abuse. I loved meeting them at the shelter and hearing their stories. We smile ’cause we are worth it! We hung out in the backyard where the kids play – blessed that there is a place like this so kids can be outside and feel safe.
