Erin's Law

According to the Erin’s Law website, Erin Merryn is a childhood sexual assault survivor, author, speaker, and activist who has been urging state legislatures since 2008 to mandate child sexual abuse prevention. There are currently 38 states which have done so, including South Carolina, which requires public schools to annually “provide age appropriate instruction in sexual abuse and assault awareness and prevention to all students in four-year-old kindergarten, where offered, through twelfth grade.”
