Today’s SPECIAL REPORT: Sexual Assault in Wilton has, thus far, been something readers have universally said is an important conversation for the community.
A team from the Wilton Public Schools, led by Kim Zemo, has put together some resources for families and the wider community about continuing the discussion around sexual assault and teen dating violence.
