WHAT DOES JDI DO?
JDI is the only statewide membership and advocacy coalition in Massachusetts dedicated to addressing sexual and domestic violence. We aim to support survivors and end violence by promoting gender equity, racial justice, and safety for everyone. JDI’s mission is to complement and support the expertise and leadership of our community-based members with a statewide strategy involving public and private partners to tackle systemic issues that foster and perpetuate violence, to create policies and explore innovative solutions that improve the lives of survivors, and to prevent gender-based violence.

Most websites, including JDI’s, use “Cookies” – which are electronic files that websites place on a visitor’s computer to store information that makes each visit to a respective site more efficient. JDI uses both “session” and “persistent” cookies on its website. A session cookie stores information about you only while you are visiting our site, then is deleted when you leave our site. Persistent cookies store information about you, your preferences, and information about other websites you visit, and it remains on your computer or device after you leave our website.

When you visit our website, we automatically collect the name of the website you visited from (called the “referring page”) and the name of the website you chose to visit immediately after ours (called the “exit page”), and information about other websites you have recently visited.
