Erin Merryn, of Illinois, is traveling the country to share the story of how she was sexually assaulted as a child, not by strangers, but by two men her family trusted. She's pushing to have "Erin's Law" placed on the books in every state.

Erin's story from her website:
"From ages 6-8 1/2 and 11-13 two men molested and raped me. One a neighbor the other a family member. I wasn't telling because nobody had educated me to tell. The only message I was getting was from the men abusing me. These men told me they would come get me, they knew where I lived, no one would believe me, I had no proof, and I would destroy my family if I told our secret. There are children across this world being told the same thing I was told and I have now made it my mission to educate and empower every child with their voice through Erin's Law."

The mission of  Erin's law is to get education in all 50 states on the prevention of sexual abuse by empowering children with their voice instead of allowing sex offenders to silence them.
