Breaking the Silence teams up TLC with RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) and Darkness to Light (D2L) a nonprofit organization that works to empower people to prevent child sexual abuse and will share the stories of survivors of sexual abuse.
In an exclusive First Look clip from the one-hour special Erin Merryn opens up about being a two-time survivor and discusses her passionate fight to end abuse with Erin's Law legislation, which requires sexual abuse prevention education in public schools and has already been passed in 26 states.
"Like so many survivors, I ended up keeping it a secret for years," she says. "Now, as a mother with my own child, I want to make sure my children know how to speak up."
