OAESV is thrilled to announce that the House Health Committee is holding its Proponent Hearing on Erin's Law (House Bill 321) on Tuesday, October 15! Erin's Law, if passed, would require schools to provide age appropriate instruction on sexual abuse and sexual violence to students. The bill would also require Ohio's Department of Education to provide free model curricula online for school use.
Erin's Law, in effect in 37 states, creates safer environments and lives for children. Ohio's children and families deserve the same level of protection and prevention services.
