When the world went into quarantine, domestic violence rates skyrocketed. My partner, Emeline, and I began doing research to see if there was anything we could do to bring awareness to this issue. What we found, though, was even worse than we knew: in countries all across the world, violence against women is actually legalized. We came up with this campaign to bring awareness to these atrocities and 🤞hopefully help change these laws🤞. And we won a bronze lion, the One Show Sustainable Development pencil, and a silver pencil.

This was the first idea executed by Fight Gunfire With Fire. Initially, the idea was to put a bulletproof vest on the Statue of Liberty.

Then, people started talking.
