2018 Spring Into Action
Join us on Thursday, May 3, 2018, as we honor our 2018 Justice in Action awardees:
* Ayanna Pressley, Boston City Councilor-At-Large
* Domestic & Sexual Violence Council
You can find sponsorship and tickets information here.
Join our growing community of people who want to be part of creating a world of gender equity, racial justice, and safety.
Our two honorees demonstrate how we can each make a difference.
And every day, it's partners like you who help JDI to promote healthier, safer and more just communities by upholding the dignity and human rights of all.
Jane Doe Inc. hosted 300 anti-violence educators and preventionists, activists, community organizers, human services, youth development and health care providers, educators, employers, coaches, and allies for a day-long summit to learn, share, and network. Check out the video from our Panel featuring Byron Hurt, Peter Roby, and Craig Norberg-Bohm where we explored what masculinity means, how men are allies for gender justice, the intersection of gender-based violence and racial justice and more.

We honored two stellar leaders who have shown what it means to put justice into action:
Yvonne Abraham has used her voice in the pages of the Boston Globe to shed light on the needs as well as resilience of people impacted by violence.
Matt Fishman has focused his career and volunteer leadership on improving the public health and welfare of our communities.
Like them, Jane Doe Inc. works tirelessly every day to advance social, health and economic justice for all communities. Your support will help Jane Doe Inc. (JDI) continue to be an effective advocate as the only statewide coalition against sexual and domestic violence in Massachusetts. JDI’s leadership to mobilize our 55 member organizations and allies in business, government and civic arenas to address prevention, policy, and systems reform at the state and national levels is needed now more than ever.
