Wicked Local logo

In recent reporting on a local #MeToo event, the Melrose Free Press spoke with Patrick Donovan, BARCC's interim director of community awareness and prevention services. 

Excerpt: "'With #MeToo, there can be a lot of pressure to share, and it is important for survivors to know that is their choice, and they don’t owe sharing to anyone,' Donovan said. “They can also make a lot of choices about how and to whom and what they share, because there can be a lot to consider, especially when they are sharing in their own community.'"
