Stand Up 2 Sexual Violence Fundraising


We hope to raise $25,000  


Healthy Living Counseling Center (HLCC) is a counseling agency in Palatine, IL that provides comprehensive mental health care across the lifespan and for a wide spectrum of mental health concerns such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders, attention difficulties, behavioral problems, and trauma.

HLCC is dedicated to helping communities and organizations fight to reduce sexual violence.

* According to Worldwide Sexual Assault Statistics published in 2005, 1 in 3 American women will be sexually assaulted in her lifetime.

* 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys are sexually assaulted before age 18.


Help HLCC support Chicago’s local activist Erin Merryn and her organization, Erin’s Law.  Erin’s law was established by Erin to help reduced sexual abuse of children.  Her law requires mandatory sexual  abuse awareness training every year in elementary school.  Erin’s Law has been passed in Illinois and 18 other states.  However, Erin would like all 50 states to pass her law and even wants to take it internationally.  In fact, Erin is lobbying for Erin’s Law in Australia in September of 2014.  She needs all of our help in paying for traveling expenses so that she can lobby her law in each state and internationally.

Erin was Glamour Woman of the year recipient in 2012, she has authored three books and has appeared on Oprah, Katie Couric, Today Show and too many other shows to note promoting Erin’s Law.  She is a true force of energy helping to end sexual abuse to children.  Help her on her mission to protect our children.
