Visionary Voice Award given to Becky Lockwood

Award only given to 23 people

AMHERST, Mass. (WWLP) - It's an award only given to 23 people across the country.

It's known as the Visionary Voice Award and is given to those making strides in sexual assault awareness.

UMass' associate director of the Center for Women and Community, Becky Lockwood, is being honored for being a cut above the rest.

The statewide advocacy coalition Jane Doe Inc. nominated Lockwood for the award, something they haven't done since 2005. Lockwood helped create the only campus based rape crisis response team in the state. She says it's helped bridge gaps between victims and law enforcement.

“Having that better communication between a police officer and a survivor makes for a better and stronger criminal complaint. And then the district attorney can be more successful when there's better reporting,” Lockwood told 22News.

For more information on rape crisis services log on to The Center for Women and Community website or call the 24 hour crisis hotline at 413-545-0800 or 888-337-0800
