Julianna Margulies & Erin Merryn Discuss Erin's Law
Erin’s Law is named after childhood sexual assault survivor, author, speaker and activist Erin Merryn, who is the founder and President of Erin’s Law, which is registered with the State of Illinois and the IRS as a 501 (c)(4) non-profit social welfare organization. After Erin introduced the legislation in her home state of Illinois, the bill was named “Erin’s Law” after her by legislators and it has caught on nationwide. “Erin’s Law” requires that all public schools in each state implement a prevention-oriented child sexual abuse program. Watch Merryn and actor Julianna Margulies, who is being honored by Identification Discovery and People Mag on Nov 2 for her work with both the Brady Campaign to end Gun Violence and Erin’s Law, take the BUILD stage to discuss this incredibly important law.
