Here’s how to help Lauren’s Law pass the Oklahoma Senate
‘I’m ready to take on the Senate’
On March 7, Lauren's Law, which was co-written by 17-year-old Lauren Atkins, passed the Oklahoma House Floor. The bill (HB2743) would require teaching staff and administrators to take a training program on consent and healthy relationships to then educate their students.
Babe told Lauren's story about being raped while unconscious in November 2017. Read it here.
Lauren's Law will soon be read in the Oklahoma Senate Education Committee. This is how you can help get it passed
Yes All Daughters, an advocacy group for victims of sexual violence and bullying, is urging people to contact Oklahoma senators to ask them to vote yes on Lauren's Law.
