What is Erin's Law?

Erin’s Law is named after childhood sexual assault survivor, author, speaker and activist Erin Merryn. It requires that all public schools implement a prevention-oriented child sexual abuse program that teaches:

  • Students (Pre-K to 12th 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
