Each and every one of us has a role to play in creating a world free of violence and abuse. Get involved. Speak out. Learn more. Make a difference!
Sign up for our email alerts and become part of our statewide policy and legislative response. Our alerts provide detail on the issue, talking points, and instructions on who to contact. It's critical that your elected officials hear directly from you as they make decisions about legislation and budget priorities.
Four times a year JDI hosts awareness and prevention campaigns to help improve public understanding, shift public attitudes, and ultimately prevent and end sexual and domestic violence:
January – Stalking Awareness and Prevention Month
March – Massachusetts White Ribbon Day (held during Women's History Month & International Women's Day)
April – Sexual Violence Awareness and Prevention Month
October – Domestic Violence Awareness and Prevention Month
These campaigns coincide with nationally recognized months and other anniversaries. Local agencies and state and territory coalitions around the country produce posters, advertisements, materials, and events. You can download materials, attend and/or sponsor events, and help spread the word.
(Check back later for materials from our past campaigns.)
We hope you'll join us at local and statewide events throughout the year. Bring along a friend, colleague, or relative. Check out the What's Happening section for JDI activities and the public calendar of events sponsored by our members and allies.
