Erin’s Law Making Its Way Across the US

Erin’s Law Making Its Way Across the US

Erin Merryn endured sexual abuse for four years of her childhood. She sought help at 13 and found it. Erin went on to become a child and family therapist, but quit a few years ago to take her cause across the country.

Erin Merryn believes all school-aged children should receive age-appropriate education on sexual abuse prevention and recovery.

The state of Illinois is the first to sign the mandate named Erin’s Law.  Governor Pat Quinn signed the mandate at the end of January. Erin is now touring the country advocating for the protection of children.

About Threads of Compassion

Threads of Compassion is a loosely connected group of survivors of sexual violence who desire to offer comfort and support to recent victims. The idea is simple. Anyone whose life has been affected by sexual assault or abuse is welcome to knit or crochet a scarf which in turn will be given to a victim of sexual violence when they enter the hospital for emergency treatment.
