What's Happening

"Educating our communities and elected officials about the needs of survivors in our local cities and towns requires year round focus. JDI is our pathway to informing and influencing the state and national agenda to end sexual and domestic violence." ~ Karen Cavanaugh, Executive Director of Womanshelter/Companeras. PICTURE: Staff from The Center for Hope & Healing with Attorney General Maura Healey at JDI Advocacy Day.

JDI Day of Action 2018

On March 26, 2016, the JDI Day of Action, JDI and our member programs visited each of the 200 Legislators in the Massachusetts House of Representatives and Massachusetts Senate to advocate for increased funding in the FY19 budget, and for the passage of important legislation that will support MA college students and immigrants. There is still much work to do to ensure that we acheive these goals. Scroll down for specific action steps.

Our chant at the program says it all: 

  • When sexual and domestic violence continues to flourish unchecked in Massachusetts: We say NO MORE
  • When the actions of the federal government threaten to make Massachusetts less safe for students, immigrants and so many others: We say NO MORE
  • When barriers are put in our path when there is so much to do on so many fronts: We say NO MORE

 

 Please contact your legislators today and make the following requests:

  • Increase funding for community based rape crisis centers and domestic violence programs by $3.5m
  • House members: Support S2203, An Act Relative to Sexual Violence on Higher Education Campuses, and ask leadership to ensure that the bill be advanced to the full House of Representatives for a vote
  • Find a way to advance key protections for immigrants, thought the budget or other means.
