The Jenna Quinn Law promotes community based education and training for teachers, caregivers, and students to prevent child sexual abuse. First passed as Jenna’s Law in Jenna’s home state Texas in 2009, more than half of all states have since adopted a form of Jenna’s Law. Read more about the Jenna Quinn law, and about Jenna’s personal tale of triumph over child sexual abuse, on her own website.
The federal version of the Jenna Quinn law passed the Senate unanimously in September 2020, but it didn’t reach the House before Congress ended its session. A similar act called the Stronger Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act is likely to pass in the upcoming month. Now is your chance to get the Jenna Quinn Law into effect by contacting your Senator in the Health, Education, Labor and Pension Committee to ask them to include the Jenna Quinn Law in the Senate mark up of the Stronger Child Prevention and Treatment Act.
The form below will allow you to send an email to your Senator on the Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee automatically, if you have one. If you don’t have a Senator on that Committee, then instead please spread the word.
