My name is Dune Mecartney and I am 16 years old. I am a survivor of abuse and this is my story.
My name is Dune Mecartney and I’m 16 years old and going into my sophomore year at Pinedale High School in Pinedale, Wyoming. This website is part of my Boy Scouts of America Eagle project. I am attempting to educate people about child abuse, help children with resources on my website, raise awareness by participating in national speeches and conferences and to help get Dune’s Law: The Safe Child Act of Wyoming passed in my state. Dune’s Law is the state version of Kayden’s Law, which is part of the Violence Against Women Act, passed and signed into Law by President Biden March 15, 2022. I am a survivor of child abuse from a home of domestic violence, and here is my story. I want to help other children stay safe and ensure that they are never court ordered to go to reunification camps with their abuser and be further traumatized.
