Greetings from JDI
We are at a pivotal moment. While recent events (think Ray Rice, Bill Cosby, reports of campus sexual violence) have brought more attention to sexual and domestic violence, the scale of sexual and domestic violence continues to be enormous - and the response must be equally profound. There is no single answer to meet the complex needs of victims and survivors and to cultivate effective prevention efforts. New approaches and policies and additional resources are required to get to the root of these issues and ensure appropriate responses to those in need.
Jane Doe Inc.'s analysis and expertise, collaboration and partnerships, vision and leadership are needed now more than ever.
Jane Doe Inc. needs your help to advocate with and for our members and survivors for social change that will move us towards our vision of a world without sexual and domestic violence, a world of safety and justice!
Thanks to a generous donor who has stepped up, every dollar you give up to $10,000 will be matched dollar for dollar. Will you help us reach this match by being one of 100 people who each gives $100?
With your help, JDI will:
Work in partnership with our membership to advocate for state and federal funding to help expand access to life-saving services and educational efforts in local communities throughout Massachusetts;
Move our work upstream towards prevention and build on the momentum of our statewide White Ribbon Day Campaign to engage thousands of men and boys to reimagine manhood by rejecting strict gender roles and promoting equity and respect; and
Provide leadership to improve the ways in which systems respond and support options for all survivors, especially those from marginalized and disenfranchised communities.
We hope you will include Jane Doe Inc. in your giving list this year. Every dollar counts. Together, we can turn this pivotal moment into a new future!
For peace, healing, safety and justice,
Debra J. Robbin, Ed.M.
