Thursday, March 1st is the official WRD this year. JDI will host a modest press conference to help launch activities taking place across the state. More details on Press Release.
Wednesday, March 7, JDI will join the Northwest District Attorney's WRD Task Force, Safe Passage and the Center for Women and Community for a WRD Event at Northampton High School.
The Summit was a huge success - with over 300 attendees from Massachusetts and across the world!
We explored the intersectionsbetween gender equity, racial justice, and healthy masculinities, the impact these issues may have on survivors of gender-based violence and community violence, and the opportunities to foster a society where everyone can be their full and authentic selves free from fear and violence.
You can relive the moment and share with friends and colleagues. You'll find a 4 minute highlight plus the full video of the panel and keynote on the #ReimagineManhood Summit YouTube Playlist.

Every year sexual and domestic violence advocates, survivors, and allies come together at the State House to advocate with and on behalf of survivors to affect social change and end gender-based violence.
We invite you to join us for the JDI Day of Action to #SupportSurvivors as we bring a strong message to our elected officials that we need responsive policies and adequate state funding for community-based sexual and domestic violence services.
