Jane Doe Inc. has partnered with its member organization The Network/La Red to create this first of its kind sexual and domestic violence prevention campaign in Massachusetts focused on the lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer and/or transgender communities.

Our goals are two-fold: to spread awareness about sexual and domestic violence in LGBQ/T communities and to ensure that services, systems and the public respond and meet the needs of LGBQ/T survivors and victims.

We want your voice to help shape this campaign. Tell us how you envision a world free of sexual and domestic violence in LGBQ/T communities by submitting a video completing the statement "I Want a World..." Videos not your thing? Express your "I want a World" vision through poetry, drawings, or whatever medium best suits you.
