Guest Speaker: Jenna Quinn
Jenna Quinn is a triumphant survivor of sexual abuse. She is also an author, speaker and the survivor that inspired “Jenna's Law,” the first child sexual abuse prevention law in the United States named after a survivor. The Texas statute passed in 2009 requires school districts K-12 to educate students, parents and faculty about child abuse.
Jenna’s Law addresses sexual abuse and other forms of maltreatment. It has since been expanded to incorporate child and foster care centers, universities and child-placing agencies. In 2017, Jenna’s Law was amended to also include sex trafficking prevention in schools. Over half the country has adopted some form of legislation for their schools.
Jenna will share her 12 years of experience fighting for legislation, working with law enforcement, abuse prevention groups and speaking out as a victor, not a victim.
