MANicure Movement: Join the Movement to polish off child abuse!

One fingernail painted blue starts …
one conversation that moves us …
one step closer to ending the tragic reality that…
one in five children will suffer abuse before the age of 18.

The MANicure Movement® is a grassroots effort designed to raise awareness of child abuse as a national health crisis, and to ignite local action.

Join us in April – National Child Abuse Prevention Month – for an educational series that will provoke substantive discussion of adverse childhood experiences; while preparing parents, educators, first responders and child advocates to identify warning signals and intervene to offset childhood trauma.

Make plans to join us for any or all MANicure Movement® programs. Thanks to our partners at Florida Blue, there is no cost to participate.
