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, JDI board member and Executive Director of Womanshelter/Companeras, pictured here with a JDI delegation meeting with Congressman Niki Tsongas

Marathon Message


Dear JDI Friends,

Our hearts and thoughts go out to all those who were affected by yesterday's bombings at the Boston Marathon. Many of you ran or attended, had family/friends/acquaintances who ran or attended, followed the marathon through the media or were one of the many volunteers, staff and first responders.  Some of you may have witnessed the horrific bombing, been injured or know someone who was injured or killed.  The truth is that the trauma of this cowardly act of violence affects us all.

Amidst all the loss, fear, sadness, and yes, anger, we are reminded that several of our member programs had teams who were running in the event, raising money and awareness to help support victims of sexual and domestic violence.  We hope that, like us, you will find comfort in knowing that the spirit of these teams and all the other teams running in support of services and programs will not be shaken. We gain strength from the courage on display yesterday as it is every day by those working for peace and justice. 

For now, we just wanted to let all of our friends and supporters know that we are thinking of you during this difficult time.  If you are looking for resources for yourselves and your children, we have posted a few items on our website at www.janedoe.org/marathon.


Mary R. Lauby
Executive Director
