Media: Other Cities are Stripping Wynn’s Name from Buildings. Why Would We Put it up?

The Boston Globe's Nestor Ramos wrote a column last week on the opportunity to prevent the installation of Steve Wynn's name on the Boston Harbor casino that's currently under construction. In the column, which followed reports of decades of sexual violence in the workplace, Ramos cites BARCC Executive Director Gina Scaramella's statement on the issue

Excerpt: "'We must do this not because survivors of sexual assault need to be shielded from Wynn’s name. They do not,' Scaramella said in the statement. 'Survivors routinely navigate hundreds of reminders of what they’ve experienced in their daily lives.'"
