Annual Report

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 gender and relationship 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 our program activities, Jana’s Campaign aims to play a

BUILDING SOMETHING THAT MATTERS On the morning of December 10, 2009, Christie and I stood in front of a large crowd of supporters and creation of what we called “Jana’s Campaign”. At the time we didn’t exactly know what we were going to do, but we knew we were going to do something

after burying our daughter Jana, it was our belief “that the story of Jana’s life and death” could be used as a rallying call for many interested in “We have been very methodical about building addressing the social disease of domestic a violence prevention organization that has violence. Now four years direct impact and has the ability to sustain that later, and with the help of impact over a long period of time.” many friends, supporters and partners, we’re on our way to building something that matters. PHILOSOPHY

and dating violence and be a catalyst for social change.

Our vision is that Jana’s Campaign will play a 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. 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. 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.

I label this past year, 2013, as a transition year. We have moved from a small, family operated group of passionate activists, to what I would describe today as a professional organization with quality staff, active board members, individual and corporate partners and growing assets to address the issue. Most importantly however, our programing impact continues to grow. This includes our work locally, While we recognize that we are still in the early stages of construction, our board of directors are excited about the progress we have made. We have been very methodical about building a violence prevention organization that has direct impact and has the ability to sustain that impact over a long period of time. I am quite sure that Jana is proud of the foundation we have constructed.

Dr. Curt Brungardt


Board President

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 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.

JANA The most unlikely of domestic violence victims, Jana Mackey, rights and had spent years volunteering to aid victims of sexual assault and domestic violence. Jana represented the new generation of American feminists. As a passionate social and women’s activist, Jana fought for equality and social justice at every turn. Described as “honey on steel,” 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.

Engaging Men & Boys to Stop Gender Violence 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.

Staff and board members have worked directly with groups of men and boys on the important role they can play in reducing gender violence. This includes working with sports teams, school clubs and groups, fraternities and all male residential halls. Presentations, organized the training of athletic coaches at three area high schools on the national recognized violence prevention program “Coaching Boys football coach John Montgomery, this program was implemented with his football team during the fall football season.
