Our 1994 Joyful Heart Necklace was born as a call to action to save The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). This recycled sterling silver necklace brings attention to the current fragile state of this landmark ruling, which is stalled in Congress. The bill was originally signed in 1994 and was the first federal legislation to acknowledge domestic violence and sexual assault as crimes and continues to be vital in the movement to end violence against women.
The Joyful Heart Foundation was founded by actress and advocate, Mariska Hargitay, to help survivors heal and reclaim joy in their lives! You will shine with renewed pride in these symbolic jewels, knowing that you stand for something meaningful. Be a catalyst in the transformation of society’s response to sexual assault, domestic violence, and child abuse. 100% of the net proceeds go directly to the foundation.
The recycled sterling silver necklace measures ½” long by ¼” tall and by hangs from a 16" or 18” with a spring ring closure.
Charity styles may only be exchanged.
