The Associated Press covered BARCC's call to the Massachusetts Gaming Commission, Gov. Charlie Baker, and other state lawmakers to ensure that Steven Wynn's name isn't displayed on the Boston Harbor casino that's currently being built in Everett. Wynn resigned as CEO of the company after reports of sexual violence that spanned decades were brought to light. 

Excerpt: "A Massachusetts nonprofit that helps sexual assault survivors says the $2.4 billion casino Wynn Resorts is building outside Boston shouldn’t be named after former CEO Steve Wynn. The Boston Area Rape Crisis Center says the state shouldn’t get 'stuck with a monument to a man forced out of his job due to multiple allegations of sexual assault.'"
