Description: 

Lauren Book, founder of Lauren’s Kids, was a victim of childhood sexual abuse for six years at the hands of her nanny. Armed with the knowledge that 95 percent of sexual abuse is preventable through education, Lauren has worked to turn her horrific personal experience into a vehicle to prevent childhood sexual abuse and heal survivors by starting Lauren’s Kids. Lauren’s Kids encourages victims to “shine a light in dark places” and “shed the shame.” Lauren’s Kids is based in South Florida and educates adults and children about sexual abuse topics through in-school curriculum, a 24-hour Crisis Hotline and speaking engagements around the country. Lauren’s Kids holds an annual, statewide “Walk in My Shoes” event, which brings together survivors and advocates on a walk across Florida to raise awareness and promote supportive legislation. Lauren’s Kids also holds annual fundraisers such as the Eric Reid and Tony Fiorentino Golf Tournament and VIP dinner that raise funds for the organization. Eric Reid and Tony Fiorentino are the TV broadcast voices of the Miami Heat.Learn more.
