Erin’s Law final Task Force Report
All it took was one night for my innocence to be stolen. From ages 6-8 1/2 and 11-13 two men molested and raped me. One a neighbor the other a family member. I wasn’t telling because nobody had educated me to tell. The only message I was getting was from the men abusing me. These men told me they would come get me, they knew where I lived, no one would believe me, I had no proof, and I would destroy my family if I told our secret. There are children across this world being told the same thing I was told and I have now made it my mission to educate and empower every child with their voice through Erin’s Law. A law I am determined to get passed in all 50 states. Make sure to scroll to the bottom of this page. Lots of information and videos on Erin’s Law.

Education Program requires age-appropriate sexual abuse and assault awareness and prevention education in grades
Pre-kindergarten through 12
