Did you know domestic violence is the 3rd leading cause of homelessness among families? We aim to help put an end to domestic violence as supporter of the “Put a Nail in It,” an initiative sponsored by Safe Horizons and the No More campaign. This is the second year RU has participated in solidarity with survivors of domestic violence.

How can you support?: Meet us at the Den, have your ring finger painted purple (the nationally recognized color for domestic violence awareness) and spread the word! Simple as that and takes less than 10 minutes. The Put a Nail in It awareness program will be held Oct 24 & Oct 25. We extended the time for Oct 24 until 2:30.

Meet and get your nail painted by student athletes, members of the Title IX Team and the new Lang Health Counseling staff. This program is a partnership of RU Athletics, Compliance and Title IX and Lang Health. Questions? Contact LaShun McGhee at lmghee@rockford.edu.
