I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
They gave me the ability to love myself again and to realize that I am a SURVIVOR and not a victim. My life today, only 3 years after the last assault, is beautiful. Had it not been for that initial letter and their continuous follow-up with me, I would not have made it to this day. I have personally witnessed the fact that all survivors who contact their office are treated in the exact same way ... with courtesy, sincerity, and a true desire to eradicate sexual abuse in detention environments.

What, if any, change in your life has this group encouraged?
My desire to live. My desire to love again. My desire to trust again. My willingness to accept that not all people want to hurt me. That compassion does exist in this world and that people do actually care about me. When I was a prisoner, staff treated me badly. JDI helped me to understand that even when a prisoner, my life was worthy and valuable.
