Our Priorities Post Election 2018

On November 6, 2018, the overwhelming majority of voters in Massachusetts voted to protect and uphold transgender rights. This is a shared victory = the leadership of the Freedom for All Massachusetts campaign, JDI members and their staff and volunteers, all of you who voted, organized and talked to someone about the importance of this issue, and most importantly the transgender community who showed courage and dignity in speaking their truths. 
While we celebrate this critical step for transgender rights, the work is not done. Read more....

We #BelieveSurvivors

While the U.S. Senate confirmed the appointment of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS), the movement to #BelieveSurvivors continues to grow.  At the JDI rally on the day of the vote, JDI joined Planned Parenthood, NARAL, the ACLU, elected officials, and a thousand supporters to say we #BelieveSurvivors - including Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. Debra Robbin, JDI's Executive Director, spoke about the 200% increase in calls to rape crisis centers.  Check out her speech and photos from the day - an amazing show of strength, organized by students at Emerson College! There's also a link to the remarks by US Olympian Adam Rippon! https://janedoeinc.smugmug.com/Stop-Kavanaugh-Rally/
