The current debate and proposals regarding the repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) has specific implications for survivors of sexual or domestic violence. JDI drafted this statement to outline our concerns and to call upon the U.S. Senate to improve rather than to dismantle our nation’s health care system.
Througout the year, JDI and our member programs work to support students and focus on prevention of sexual violence. Students face an array of relationships - roommates, teachers, classmates/schoolmates, friends both at school and away, and family members.
Check out these resources for students, teachers, parents, and friends to help foster healthy environments and help you understand the issues, rights and options as well as information about activism, prevention initiatives and school policies.
The Summit was a huge success - with over 300 attendees from Massachusetts and across the world!
We explored the intersectionsbetween gender equity, racial justice, and healthy masculinities, the impact these issues may have on survivors of gender-based violence and community violence, and the opportunities to foster a society where everyone can be their full and authentic selves free from fear and violence.
Watch the highlights!
The Massachusetts Legislative Joint Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security held a hearing on The Safe Communities Act (H3033) at the State House on Friday, June 9, 2017. JDI presented testimony urging passage of this bill and the allocation of resources to provide meaningful support and services toward improving the safety and dignity of all members of our Commonwealth, including immigrants who experience sexual and domestic violence.
JDI is so excited by the energy and commitment of the the activist philanthropists who created the Young Philanthropist Giving ImPACT for Jane Doe Inc. This new initiative has been designed by and for people under 40 years old who want to financially contribute, educate, and cultivate awareness around domestic and sexual violence throughout the Commonwealth.
