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 and relationship 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 gender and relationship violence. We see her as a symbol of the millions of people 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.
