PAVE Ambassador Erin Merryn is an author/activist/speaker who has launched a nationwide effort to pass Erin’s Law.
“Erin’s Law” requires that all public schools implement a prevention-oriented child sexual abuse program which teaches:
- Students in grades preK – 5th grade, age-appropriate techniques to recognize child sexual abuse and tell a trusted adult
- School personnel all about child sexual abuse
- Parents & guardians the warning signs of child sexual abuse, plus needed assistance, referral or resource information to support sexually abused children and their families
Already state governments in Illinois, Indiana, Maine and Missouri have passed Erin’s Law.
It is now pending in eight additional states, with more to come:
- New Mexico
- New York
Erin’s Law is named after childhood sexual assault survivor turned activist Erin Merryn, who is the founder and President of Erin’s Law, which is registered with the IRS as a 501 (c)(4) non-profit social welfare organization.
Erin has been featured on Oprah, Montel Williams, Good Morning America, CNN, Time, The Chicago Tribune and was recently named a Glamour Woman of the Year. She has dedicated her life to preventing child sexual abuse and supporting its victims. She is determined to see to it that all 50 states pass Erin’s Law to protect millions of children from having to experience anything similar to what she did.
