I started this website back in 2012, and I had no idea the impact it would make. I also didn’t realize how hard it was going to be to pass this type of legislation, and the time and commitment it would take.
I’ve personally funded this site, as well as legislative efforts to pass this legislation, and legislation requiring criminal background checks for mental health professionals and doctors in multiple states for a few years now.
As a few professionals who have spent the majority of their careers doing what I’m doing have told me i would reach this point; I am ready to move on now.
Lynette’s law is currently in Maryland, WV, and DE. Criminal background checks is running once again in WV, and was withdrawn by Senator Peterson in VA.
I’m thankful for all the comments, the emails, and all those who have inspired me to keep fighting for this.
You are never alone, and it only takes 1 person to stand up and make a difference, and I think we all should.
