What We Do
At Jane Doe Inc. we work to amplify the voices of all who are impacted by sexual and domestic violence and to undo the social injustices that perpetuate an abuse of power.
We work with our membership and a host of public and private partners to create policies and explore innovative solutions that improve the lives of survivors. We seek to prevent gender-based violence by changing the lens through which people view the experiences of survivors and by promoting equity and justice for everyone.
Our work complements the life-saving and healing services provided by our 55 community-based member organizations from the Berkshires to the Cape and everywhere in between.

Our community is made up of a diverse and growing group of local, regional, and national allies. In a typical week, we could be standing in solidarity with those working for immigrant rights, supporting students addressing sexual assault on their campus, or working with a business leader to bring change to their corporate culture. Using our collective power, we work together to create the world we want to make. Learn more about these invaluable voices for change.
JDI has been at the forefront of this work in Massachusetts for decades, changing the way society views and reacts to sexual and domestic violence in ways that make our communities safer today and for future generations. We’ve come a long way in exposing these issues that too often remain hidden and thrive on silence. As the collective community enters the brave new dialogue around gender-based violence, we will continue to offer leadership, expertise, and advocacy to help survivors heal and advance justice.
No act is too small. You can sign up for JDI’s action alerts, work with us to address sexual violence on your college campus, join thousands of boys and men engaged in our #ReimagineManhood initiative, or share your time and talents with JDI and our member programs across the Commonwealth.
