ONE fingernail painted blue starts ...

        ONE conversation that moves us ...

                 ONE step closer to polishing off child abuse.



The MANicure Movement®, which started right here in Central Florida in 2017, is a grassroots effort designed to raise awareness of child abuse as a national health crisis. Throughout the month, child welfare agencies work in tandem with community partners to highlight the important prevention work that is being done to create strong families. 

Tell me more about the campaign!

The campaign runs throughout the month of April -- which is National Child Abuse Prevention Month.  It is highlighted by kick-off events throughout Florida; widespread involvement of community leaders and first responders; ongoing corporate champion MANicure events; an educational webinar series; and a robust social media campaign.  

Okay, I'm in. What can I do?

There are many ways to participate. A few appear below, but keep following this blog to learn more about how we can work together to polish off child abuse.

We are just getting started in planning for this year's MANicure Movement®, so there is much more information to come.  Please let us know that you want to get involved with a quick email to community.relations@embracefamilies.org.


Thank you for your commitment to helping us polish off child abuse!
