Luke Wiersma was sexually abused by an adult from the ages of sixteen to eighteen, two to three times a week, sometimes more. His abuser would drug him, hold him down, and assaulted him. Since 2021, when he shared his story for the very first time, he became a fierce Advocate for children and survivors. One of his goals is to change the laws to create harsher punishments for sex offenders as well as protect the children of today, so that they hav e a have a safer place to grow up. Awareness and prevention is key. He has shared his story many times and will never stop sharing, will never surrendering, until every child is safe from this evil.

Laura minimized the incest she experienced at the hands of her stepfather for over forty years. At the age of 8, Laura's stepfather would sexually abuse her while her mother was out of town for work. At 14, when Laura told her mother what happened, her mother initially validated Laura's cry for help, but would eventually come to deny the acts and chose to stay with her husband compounding onto the sexual trauma Laura experienced. Laura is a former ICU R.N. with over 20 years of healthcare experience around the U.S. While Laura's goal was to heal patients in need of critical care, Laura's goals are now to help other victims and survivors by sharing her story, listening to others, and to help advocate for the elimination of the Statute of Limitations in Texas. She currently lives in Austin, Texas with her husband and two dogs.
