The campaign is called “Put the Nail in It.” By painting their left ring fingernail purple, the color of the anti-domestic violence movement, supporters will show the world their vow to end domestic violence and support Safe Horizon and the survivors it serves.
In addition to painting their left ring fingernail purple, people can also show their support by spreading the word on social media with #PutTheNailinIt or, most importantly, by donating at safehorizon.org to help victims safely become survivors.
Kira received the Voice of Empowerment Award in recognition of her work in bringing awareness to domestic violence, her tireless efforts as a volunteer and leader at Safe Horizon, and her advocacy for victims and survivors.

She has worked especially close with Safe Horizon, based in New York City.
