"I spoke out to put a face to the issue for the millions of women, men and children who suffer in silence and to say that you are not alone. Help is available." ~ Ayanna Pressley, Boston City Councilor (Photo by Christopher Mason)

Member Organizing

As a benefit and responsibility of membership in the Coalition, staffers at member programs participate on JDI member committees and groups that serve two important purposes:

  • they provide networking opportunities for advocates and peers to support one another and share new information about their work;

  • they create the foundation for determining JDI priorities, identifying new best practices and for formulating public policy recommendations, based on the experiences of and needs of survivors and the expertise of local programs and advocates.

Some JDI member groups have been meeting regularly for over 30 years! Currently we have three active Working Groups for Sexual Assault Program Directors, Communications and Development staff, and Prevention and Education advocates.  

We also have  an The JDI Policy Committee that is compromised of executive directors from member programs in each region of Massachusetts. This committee plays an advisory role to JDI’s Policy Director and Executive Director regarding JDI’s state and federal public policy and budget advocacy priorities and strategies. Committee members bring their expertise as local providers and their knowledge about the needs of victims and survivors as well as the needs of local systems and system policies and practices. They also provide important information about resource needs of local sexual assault and domestic violence providers throughout the Commonwealth. These local sexual and domestic violence experts also help mobilize the full membership to engage in JDI’s advocacy efforts.
