“We’re hoping this creates a big change in how survivors are served,” said Ivonne Zucco, executive director of the Sexual Assault Crisis and Education Center, following the announcement of its award.

This marks the group’s second time awarding a local nonprofit with $100,000, and Impact Fairfield members hope the coming years will bring in even more high dollar grants as additional members join.

Sexual Assault Crisis Center to launch awareness campaign
The Hour Wilton , February 9, 2017
WILTON — The Center for Sexual Assault Crisis Counseling and Education will launch a year-long photographic awareness campaign called, “Reveal to Heal,” to raise awareness about the harm caused by sexual violence.
The campaign features a series of photographs by Veleska Martin and other local artists featuring modestly undressed models with messages written on their necks, backs and other body parts.
“The symbolic disrobing in the photographs reveals the emotional scars of sexual violence that may never leave the survivor; those wounds are literally ‘written’ on the body,” according to a release from the center. “ The hope in the campaign is that in revealing the pain, the work of healing can begin. The year-long campaign images will be widely distributed throughout Lower Fairfield County, and will be accompanied by a hashtag campaign on social media sites.
