In covering new reports of sexual violence by Steve Wynn, Boston 25 News spoke with Gina Scaramella, BARCC's executive director. The conversation included discussion of BARCC's call that Wynn's name be kept off the new casino being built in Everett.
Excerpt: "Gina Scaramella, Executive Director of the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center, believes keeping the Wynn name on the Everett casino is standing on the wrong side of sexual violence and sending the wrong message to victims. 'For survivors it’s not a question of them feeling like they’re going to, that they’re fragile and they can’t take seeing a name on the building, but it really does signal company responsibility, where do brands want to land on this issue when there is a big public outcry?' she said."
