Jenna Clarkson started this petition to Everyone and

I am a 19 year old woman, approaching 20 and only now do I feel comfortable saying ‘I was sexually abused.’ It happend to me when I was 8/9 years old and because of how young I was, I wasn’t aware that it was abuse, I didn’t know it was wrong but I knew I had to keep it a secret. I couldn’t let anyone know that someone had something to me that I didn’t fully understand. 

I want to advocate for those who can’t. I know if I had a small awareness at that age that sexual abuse was wrong, it wouldn’t have taken me so long to reveal it. I want to provide support for children who have endured the same trauma that I have, I want to educate people on it because as awful as it is to think and talk about, it happens, and the more we speak about it and offer support and get justice for those children, the less taboo it will become. Hopefully children will be more likely to bravely speak up about it and when they do, we can get the ball rolling with prosecution, serving justice and getting those vile predators off the street. I hope you will join me in educating people and being an advocate for those who can’t speak for themselves.
