Author and Activist
After suffering years of sexual abuse for six years of her childhood Erin broke her silence when she was 13 at a Children's Advocacy Center. Erin reclaimed her voice and began her journey to healing.
In 2008 she began writing legislators to require personal body safety be taught to kids in school. This decision brought her on a crusade across America to pass what is known as Erin's Law. Erin's Law is the first U.S. child sexual abuse prevention education law requiring children be educated in schools. Erin has been traveling state to state testifying to lawmakers to pass Erin's law for 7 years. It is currently passed in 31 states as of July 2017. In December 2015, President Obama signed the federal version of Erin's Law providing federal funding for schools to use. Release of those funds is still pending.
Erin's media appearances have included TLC Breaking the Silence documentary, the TODAY show, Nancy Grace, ABC Nightline, CNN, Dr. Drew, Inside Edition, MSNBC, Oprah Winfrey Network, Windy City Live, MSNBC, FOX, Katie Couric, Oprah Life Class, Issues with Jane Velez Mitchell, Oprah Winfrey Show, Montel Williams, and Good Morning America. She has appeared in People, Glamour, Time, Cosmo Girl, The London Times, USA Today, Chicago Tribune, Daily Herald, among others. In December 2010 she was voted News Maker of the year for the Daily Herald.
She earned her masters degree in Social Work and has written two more books, Living for Today and An Unimaginable Act. She is currently writing a 4th book.
