Hundreds of advocates, supporters and survivors joined JDI at the State House on March 26, 2018 for our annual JDI Day of Action.  Our message was clear:  pass legislation and allocate resources to affect social change, end gender-based violence and support survivors!  JDI is specifically calliing for an additional $3.5 million in funding for sexual and domestic violence services in Fiscal Year 2019.

JDI's advocacy has resulted in proposals from the House of Representatives for modest increases in funding and a $3million proposed increase inthe Senate.  The focus now turns to the Conference Committee.  Stay up to date and receive action alerts, by subscribing here or going to our Policy Action page.
