Given the current uncertainty out of Washington and its impact on both funding and policy issues that will affect the lives of people impacted by sexual and domestic violence, JDI has take a new look at our policy and systems advocacy agenda. This new Policy Agenda Document describes the values behind our the specific state legislative bills and our overall strategy.
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."
