MAAV joins ‘Put The Nail In It’ campaign to end domestic violence

The University of Maine’s Male Athletes Against Violence (MAAV) program is taking part in the nationwide “Put The Nail In It” campaign to end domestic violence. The student-athletes are painting their left ring fingernail purple to show support for the cause. MAAV founder Sandy Caron, a College of Education and Human Development professor, says they are hoping to get other UMaine students to participate by sharing their painted fingernails online with the hashtag #PutTheNailInIt. The campaign was started by New York-based Safe Horizon, the largest nonprofit victim services organization in the United States.
