Erin's Law

The following is taken from erinslaw.org:

Erin’s Law is named after childhood sexual assault survivor, author, speaker and activist Erin Merryn.

After Erin introduced the legislation in her home state of Illinois, the bill was named “Erin’s Law” after her by legislators and it has caught on nationwide.

Erin’s Law requires that all public schools in each state implement a prevention-oriented child sexual abuse program which teaches:

  1. Students in grades preK – 12th grade, age-appropriate techniques to recognize child sexual abuse and tell a trusted adult
  2. School personnel all about child sexual abuse
  3. Patents and guardians the warning signs of child sexual abuse, plus needed assistance, referral or resource information to support sexually abused children and their families.

We’re proud to say that “Healthy Touch, Good Boundaries, Safe Kids” meets the requirements of Erin’s Law for elementary aged children.
