Jane Doe Inc., The Massachusetts Coalition Against Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence brings together organizations and people committed to creating social change that addresses the root causes of this violence and promotes dignity and liberty for survivors. Jane Doe Inc. plays a leading role in shaping public policy through legislative action and policy development that will support survivors, hold offenders accountable and ultimately, make our communities safer. They are guided by the voices of survivors.
Currently, over 60 community-based sexual assault and domestic violence service and advocacy programs in Massachusetts comprise the membership of Jane Doe Inc. These independent non-profit organizations deliver comprehensive services to over tens of thousands of women, men and children every year, in every community across the Commonwealth. Crisis hotlines, emergency shelter, safe homes, legal and medical advocacy, educational and support groups, counseling, advocacy, safety planning, children’s advocacy, economic development programs and transitional housing are just some examples of services available. Community education is also offered on an array of topics including sexual assault, teen dating violence, and the role of men in ending violence.
The work of the Coalition complements these life-saving prevention and intervention services, resources and advocacy. With its sixty member organizations, Jane Doe Inc. engages law enforcement, the courts, health care, housing and service providers to develop and promote best practices because every victim should have access to a range of high quality services, responses and options, in every community regardless of where they are in the state. The creation of the Men’s Initiative for Jane Doe exemplifies its belief that men and boys are essential allies in the movement to end violence against women, men and children. Jane Doe Inc. works with survivors and advocates to break the silence and to dispel the myths that deny victims the right to safety, justice, and healing.
The Boston chapter of LUPEC (Ladies United for the Preservation of Endangered Cocktails) is a classic cocktail society dedicated to breeding, raising, and releasing nearly extinct drinks into the wild ( a.k.a. Boston-area bars and restaurants.) Founded in February 2007 by Misty Kalkofen of Green Street and ten fellow cocktail enthusiasts, LUPEC Boston is the city’s first and only female-oriented cocktail society. The ladies of LUPEC Boston meet once a month to sample delicious cocktail creations from a bygone era, and educate themselves about the important and nearly forgotten forebroads who sipped them.
In addition to preserving our own personal Joie de Vivre by guaranteeing members one good cocktail party every month, LUPEC Boston strives to enhance and improve the lives of Boston-area women through fundraising events for local women’s charities. LUPEC Boston partners with local bars and liquor purveyors to offer co-ed classic cocktail parties and special events.
