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.

What's Happening

The better question is "what's not happening at JDI?"  From policy work to meeting football fans at our info table at Patriot's Training Camp, we are continously advocating for the rights and safety of everyone in the Commonwealth and across the country.  Here's a quick update on current activities.   Visit our photo gallery too!

Jane Doe Inc. (JDI) stood with Attorney General Maura Healey and others as Mr. Kraft announced gifts to support a handful of initiatives to address sexual and domestic violence in the Commonwealth, including new and exciting work here at JDI.

The multi-year grant to JDI will support the establishment of our new Institute for Safety and Justice, a comprehensive training and community building initiative for the Coalition's member programs and others in the field working to support survivors of sexual and domestic violence.  Through the Institute for Safety and Justice and other work undertaken with this grant, JDI will assist JDI members and others to continue to be responsive as our work evolves to meet the emerging needs of all survivors.  

You can read more about this gift and our plans along with news about other initiatives announced today. 

A huge thank you to Robert Kraft and the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation for investing in a range of initiatives - from direct service to community building and prevention.
