Advocating for health care: a civil rights and social justice issue

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. 

Major in Healthy Relationships

As students prepare to go back to school, we are mindful that this is both a time of greater risk for sexual violence and an opportunity to focus on prevention.  JDI's intern once again created a timely banner image for social media that focuses on the array of relationships facing students - roommates, teachers, classmates/schoolmates, friends both at school and away - and promotes the idea that fostering an environment of healthy relationships takes work.

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.  

A breakfast benefit

Thank you for making Jane Doe Inc.'s first annual Spring Into Action Breakfast a success! Your generosity ensures JDI can continue building upon our strength in numbers and unity - paved with commitment and compassion - in our work to end sexual and domestic violence and all gender-based violence.  We hope to see you next year...if not sooner!

Mobilizing for Safe Communities

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.
