Mace® Brand and U.S. LawShield® to Give Away First 30 Days of Membership Free and Self-Defense Products During Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Cleveland, Oct. 10, 2023 – Mace® Security International, Inc. (OTCQB: MACE), a globally recognized leader in personal safety products, has teamed up with U.S. Lawshield®, America’s premier Legal Defense for Self Defense® organization to help people feel safe and empowered during Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October. Throughout the month, U.S. LawShield will provide its first 30 days of a new membership free and waive all startup fees while Mace® Brand, alongside U.S. LawShield, will donate one Mace® Brand Magnum 4 Night Defender Pepper Gel per member upon sign-up. *

U.S. LawShield members receive legal coverage—after lawful acts of self-defense—in 46 states through a network of 300+ Independent Program Attorneys who are available 24/7/365 through an emergency hotline.

“Every person deserves to live a life free of abuse and the right to protect themselves from harm,” said Brooksy Smith, CEO of U.S. LawShield. “With our offer of 30 days free, new members can embark on a journey to combat fear and have world-class legal representation for their personal safety needs. And while we know that not all situations and relationships can be predicted, we are delighted to give away Mace® Brand Magnum 4 Night Defender Pepper Gel to new members should they ever need to defend themselves. They also can take it upon themselves to donate the pepper gel to a local domestic violence organization or shelter if they choose to. All people are worthy of a life that is positive and healthy.”

  • Gives allowance and expects explanation for every dollar spent
  • Doesn’t allow you to work the job you want
  • Steals money from you
  • Won’t let you have money for basic needs like food, clothes, and health

Cuts you off from family and friends

  • Keeps tabs on where you go and who you go with
  • Makes you ask permission to see family and friends
  • Embarrasses you in front of others and makes you not want to go out in public

Physical abuse

  • Abandons you in unfamiliar places
  • Attacks you with weapons
  • Hinders you from eating, sleeping, or getting medical care
  • Locks you in or out of your house
  • Punches, pushes, kicks, bites, or pulls hair

“We want every individual to know that they have the support and protection needed to be empowered and prepared in any situation,” said Sanjay Singh, chairman and CEO of Mace Security International, Inc. “With a U.S. LawShield membership and our effective pepper gel, we are equipping individuals with tools to keep themselves safe. We hope everyone we know will step up and bring awareness and resources to help stop domestic abuse.”
