Creating Childhood Victories
What Is Erin’s Law?
Erin’s Law requires that all public schools offer child abuse prevention education to help children gain the confidence to have a voice, and to speak up in cases of sexual abuse. These programs educate children to be able to recognize the signs of sexual abuse, and teaches educators and other school officials to be able to recognize an abused child. Erin’s Law Programs also teach parents how to recognize the signs and provides resources for them to help sexually abused children in their family.
There are currently 26 states that have passed Erin’s Law into their state legislation, 17 states that are introducing it into law, and seven states that are in the process of passing Erin’s Law.
Together, we can improve the lives of many children by spreading child abuse awareness everywhere. Take a look at the child abuse prevention programs that I have created and work to have these laws passed in your state now.
