Marching for justice

In the current landscape, we cannot take anything for granted when it comes to advocating for the rights of all survivors and our efforts to shift the culture that tolerates and reinforces inequities, racism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, xenophia and other forms of oppression.

JDI participated in both the Trans and Queer Liberation Rally in Boston on January 14 and the Boston-based Women's Marches for America on January 21 to show our solidarity with those who have been targeted with hate speech, threats and violent acts and organize to secure the gains we have made and continue to advocate for change that supports healing and justice for survivors and communities.  

Debra Robbin, JDI's Executive Director, stated: "In the coming months and years, the need for strong advocacy, effective resistance and creative solutions will be more important than ever. We invite you to join us."

JDI Advocacy for State Funding Priorities

For the past 18 months, JDI has been actively engaged with our members and other stakeholders to participate in planning for the first procurement of state funding for sexual and domestic violence services in ten years. The procurement process is how the state determines what services it will "procure" through contracts. While not all services are paid for with state funding or federal funding passed through the state, this process has a significant impact on the makeup of services and programs in the Commonwealth.  JDI will continue to work closely with our membership to advocate for the needs of survivors, particularly those from unserved, underserved and inadequately served communities.

JDI has gathered information relevant to this process. 

Thanks to Bob Kraft and the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation, JDI launches new "Initiative for Safety and Justice: Advancing Advocacy, Organizations and Leadership"

The Initiative for Safey and Justice continues to offer engaging and critical gaherings with the leadership and advocates of our member organizations.  JDI recently conducted an online survey to learn from our members about their needs and perspectives about trauma-related issues impacting the current workforce.  Plans are underway to host more ledership summits, advocate gatherings, develop materials and curriculum and more.
