‘The art of healing’ for UConn sexual assault victims

UConn Student Rosemary RichiProject Unbreakable, a national campaign that seeks to give a voice back to victims of rape and sexual violence through photos, has spotlighted the students at the University of Connecticut who say university officials failed them after they reported their assaults.

Rosemary Richi, who reports she was raped by a UConn football student and says she was told by police they didn’t believe her story, stands in front of UConn’s football practice facility for her photo.

“Don’t tell anyone you was with me,” reads the poster Richi holds up, recounting a text message she received from her attacker.

“You’re not drunk. You want this,” another sign reads.

The photos, posted for the website’s thousands of followers, was started a few years ago by a college student in Massachusetts. The mantra set around the photos is “the art of healing.”
