We were thrilled to be a part of Occupy McKeldin yesterday at University of Maryland, College Park! It was great to see so many young women and men using their voices to stand up and speak out against #SexualViolence! Shout out to PSA for coordinating such a great event. Continue to use your voice this #SAAM and all year long to stop victim blaming and demand change to help support victims and survivors. #itsnotlove #dcsaam

JCADA would like to take a moment to send it​s​ deepest condolences to the friends and family of Jaelynn Willey, who was taken off of life support last night. Her death comes after the tragic shooting at Great Mills High School in St. Mary's County​, Maryland​. To read our full statement, please visit the JCADA blog. The link can be found below.

Jaelynn and the shooter were reported to have ​recently been in some type of​ relationship. Unfortunately, this is a reality that JCADA​ knows all too well - that abusive relationships can and sometimes do turn deadly. If you or someone you know is ​experiencing power-based violence, be it domestic violence, teen dating violence, sexual assault, ​or stalking ​please call JCADA's free and confidential helpline at 1-877-88-JCADA(52232).

Are you looking for a new way to give back? Well you're in luck! JCADA is currently looking to start a new knitting and mindfulness workshop for its clients, but is short about 10 pairs of knitting needles. Below is a link to the specific needles needed for this workshop. If you are interested in generously providing these needles, please contact Shana Brouder at shana@jcada.org or simply call 301-315-8040 and she can walk you through the process. JCADA is very grateful to have a supportive community that can help address client needs such as this one. Thank you for your continued support of our mission and our clients.
