Looking at Erin’s Law

According to erinslaw.org, “Erin’s Law” requires that all public schools in each state implement a prevention-oriented child sexual abuse program which teaches age-appropriate techniques to recognize child sexual abuse and tell a trusted adult to all students in grades preK – 12th grade, as well as teaching school personnel all about child sexual abuse and parents & guardians the warning signs of child sexual abuse, plus needed assistance, referral or resource information to support sexually abused children and their families. It’s currently passed in 37 states, and in this episode Jamie talked with Lia Williams from the Ohio Crime Victim Justice Center and a children’s advocate from Dayton, Ohio who are working to make Ohio #38.
