My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Just Detention International, Inc., Los Angeles, CA, USA
I support JDI because its work to end sexual violence behind bars is deeply important to me. I want to make our prisons safer, and I want to end sexual violence. JDI is the one-of-a kind organization with a mission that encompasses both of these aims -- and, most importantly, that gets results.
I have been fortunate to help JDI as a volunteer for the Words of Hope campaign, which allows people to send holiday messages to incarcerated survivors of rape. That such a simple act can make such a profound difference to people is a powerful lesson. I was also fortunate enough to spend a bit of time with survivors at the card-writing event, and to hear first-hand how JDI had a positive impact on their lives
As a native Angeleno, it makes me proud that JDI calls LA home!
