**Jenna Quinn is a child sexual abuse survivor, author of Pure In Heart, TED speaker, and the namesake of Jenna’s Law. Passed in 2009, Jenna’s Law was the first child sexual abuse prevention education mandate in the U.S named after a survivor. It mandates that each school district adopt and implement a prevention policy that educates students and teachers on how to recognize and report child sexual abuse. Now, over half the country has adopted legislation reflecting the principals of Jenna’s Law education.

With a Masters Degree in Communications, she has reached international audiences, educating and sharing her inspiring story with legislatures, law-enforcement, abuse-prevention groups, schools, communities of faith, nonprofit organizations, and the general public for fourteen years. As a survivor who benefited from the services of the Children’s Advocacy Center, Jenna has worked with over 70 CAC’s across the country. She is the National Spokesperson for Childhelp Speak Up Be Safe and has participated in both local and international radio, television, and news programs, dedicating her life to preventing child sexual abuse through education and legislation.
