Jane Doe Inc. Members
JDI’s 58 members provide support and services for victims and survivors and their families of sexual and domestic violence in hundreds of communities throughout the Commonwealth. These community-based, non-profit, sexual and domestic violence organizations provide life saving and life changing support to tens-of-thousands of MA residents every year. JDI members also provide leadership in their communities through collaborations with health, education and criminal justice systems. JDI members ensure that system responses are accountable to victims.

JDI’s members participate in the design and development of new and effective innovations. JDI’s member-centric, victim focused paradigm ensures that the experiences of both survivors and our members drive our prevention, program and policy advocacy actions and priorities. Our member programs influence funding and JDI direction through their active participation in public policy advocacy and on JDI project committees. Member committees focus on topics from budget advocacy priorities, homicide prevention, education, training and men’s engagement to improving statewide responses to refugee, immigrant, people of color and LGBQ/T (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Queer and Transgender) survivors and advocates.  Read more about how JDI's members are organizing for social change!
