OUR STORY WE BELIEVE IN THE ‘POWER OF THE STORY.’ Many great social movements have been driven and motivated by a series of stories, or one single story that moves people to action. We believe it is our responsibility to share the story of Jana’s life and the story of Jana’s death to reduce gender-based violence. This story is about who Jana was,
her beliefs, how she lived her life, her efforts to protect women, and her pursuit of social justice. Her powerful story is also about how she died as a victim of dating violence. We have given Jana’s name and face to the global movement of reducing violence against women. We see her as a
symbol of the millions of women worldwide who have, and continue to, suffer from this social disease. We believe in the power of the story. We believe in the power of Jana Mackey’s story to move people.
“THE WAY WE SEE IT, WE HAVE TWO CH CAN EITHER GRIEVE, OR WE CA Of the 1,197 people who died as a result of domestic and dating violence in the U.S. in 2008, one of them was Jana Lynne Mackey. Rather than celebrate the 4th of July weekend with family and friends, the Brungardt and Mackey families planned Jana’s funeral.
“If our work can help educate, encourage, or motivate just one person to stop or get out of a dangerous situation, I feel like we have honored Jana’s life and have done our job in continuing her work.” » Jennifer Berry Board Member
Since meeting that goal, Jana’s family, friends and supporters decided to narrow their future work to Jana’s passion of working to reduce gender-based violence. It was their deep desire to turn Jana’s tragedy into something positive for others. So, on December 10, 2009, and as part of the International 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence, Curt and Christie Brungardt officially announced the creation of Jana’s Campaign Inc.. At a Topeka, Kansas, press conference, the Brungarts’ laid out their plans on how they intended to create a movement to reduce domestic and dating violence.
On July 9, 2008, speakers at “Jana’s Celebration of Life” service called on the 1,100 people in attendance to pick up her fallen torch and find the courage to carry her work forward. “It is our hope that her single torch will soon become eleven hundred torches,” said speaker Curt Brungardt. “Eleven hundred others making a difference in our world.” Jana’s Campaign’s first, and most important Moments after the funeral, people began work, started immediately with encouraging sharing their ideas of service in honor of the Kansas Legislature to support the Jana. Days later, friends started a website “domestic violence designation (tag) bill.” and created an organized effort to document Three months later, Kansas Governor Mark stories of community service and Eleven Parkinson, signed the bill into law.

O CHOICES. WE E CAN GRIEVE AND ACT. WE CHOSE THE LATTER.” » Drs. Curt & Christie Brungardt Jana’s Campaign Founders
ABOUT JANA The most unlikely of domestic violence victims, Jana Mackey, was found dead in her ex-boyfriend's home on July 3, 2008. The 25-year-old KU law student was an advocate for women's rights and had spent years volunteering to aid victims of sexual assault and domestic violence. As a passionate social and women's activist, Jana fought for equality and social justice at every turn. Jana's young life was filled with examples of a young successful activist. As an undergraduate women's studies student, she organized the Kansas delegation of Kansas women who marched on Washington D.C. in 2004. She served as a staff member on both state and national campaigns for female candidates. She actively participated in the Kansas Commission on the Status of Women. From 2004-2006, Jana served as a lobbyist at the Kansas State Capitol, where she represented the Kansas National Organization for Women. Despite being one of the youngest lobbyists in the State Capitol, she effectively promoted a pro-women's agenda. Time and time again, Jana showed her courage and her ability as a skilled negotiator fighting for issues most important to women. Finally, Jana's short career included six years of volunteerism at the GaDuGi Safe Center. There, Jana was described as "honey on steel," working to reduce all forms of violence against women. In March of 2008, Jana attended a women's leadership conference where she was asked to prioritize her top personal values. Jana identified her most important value as "equality for all persons," and her second most important as "the courage to stand up for her own beliefs." Jana 'walked' her values. With these values, coupled with her years of activism, lobbying and political experience, Jana believed that a law degree was the next step in her journey to become the most effective advocate possible for women and other underrepresented groups. Jana Lynne Mackey was the kind of woman that inspired others. She inspired through her words, her song, her actions. Jana was beautiful, intelligent and kind. She was an advocate, a friend, a sister, a daughter. She was magnetic. She was a bright spot in an ordinary day. She was a hero.
“THIS MAY HAVE STARTED BECAUSE OF MY DAUGHTER, BUT TODAY, IT IS ABOUT EVERYBODY’S DAUGHTERS.” » Dr. Christie Brungardt Jana’s Mother
OUR MISSION In honor of the late Jana Mackey and other victims of domestic violence, a committed group of activists created Jana’s Campaign Inc., with the single mission of reducing domestic and dating violence. “We believe it is our responsibility to use the story of Jana’s life and the story of her death to help reduce violence against women.” Through program activities, Jana’s Campaign aims to play a significant role in breaking the cycle of domestic violence and aspires to be a catalyst for social change. Partnering with other advocates, victims, educators, the criminal justice system and lawmakers, Jana’s Campaign seeks to reduce and respond to domestic violence by pursuing a dual strategy. First, through public awareness related activities, the campaign encourages thousands of ordinary citizens to get actively involved in this serious issue. Secondly, Jana’s Campaign activists focus on the key issues of prevention and education, intervention programs, and public policy advocacy.
"Jana's Campaign is a group of advocates committed to reducing domestic violence and all forms of gender-based violence at every level– locally, nationally and globally." » Luo Zhai Board Member

“Few will have the greatness to bend history; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in total of all of those acts will be written the history of a generation…. It is from numberless diverse acts of courage that human history is thus shaped.” » Robert Kennedy 1966
OUR PHILOSOPHY Our vision is that Jana’s Campaign will play a significant role in reducing domestic violence. We believe that working with thousands of other passionate advocates from around the world, this social disease can be eradicated in a single generation. Simply, we plan to do our part to build a safer world. The massive scale of social problems like domestic violence is often viewed as so overwhelming that it hinders our ability to act. The magnitude of the problem often discourages many of us and lends us to believe that we are helpless in making a real difference. We at Jana’s Campaign view this situation differently. We recast the larger social problem of domestic violence as a series of manageable issues; each with identifiable opportunities and solutions. In essence, gender-based violence can be effectively addressed by tackling smaller related issues, one by one, over an extended period of time. Many smaller incremental changes and improvements equals transformational change.
» Dr. Curt Brungardt Jana’s Campaign President
We at Jana’s Campaign endorse a strategy of pursuing smaller victories to address this massive social disease. To us, many small victories equals substantial progress. From doing prevention work at Hays High School, to expanding batterers intervention programs in Kansas, to lobbying for the national Violence Against Women Act, to our international public awareness videos, we believe the sum total of many minor improvements can substantially contribute to reducing gender-based violence on a large scale.
Jana’s Campaign has an unwavering commitment for results and impact that produces a series of small victories. Like building blocks, these improvements and program successes build on each other and reinforce positive change. We are a group of grassroots activists who have built an organization that focuses on producing results and creating real impact.

ENGAGING MEN & BOYS TO STOP GENDER VIOLENCE
CAMPUS ACTION INITIATIVE
Jana’s Campaign believes that men and boys should be actively engaged in confronting male violence against women and girls. We believe “real men” take a stand and speak out against inequality, sexism, and violence against women. While only a small minority of men harm women, we recognize the importance that all men and boys should participate and be proactive in preventing such violence.
Jana’s Campaign believes that colleges and universities should be mobilized to reduce gender-based violence. This includes (A) encouraging higher education to improve their response to gender violence on campus, and (B) encouraging higher education to play a more active role in using their resources to reduce domestic violence in the communities and states in which they reside.
