Lauren Book – It’s OK To Tell
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 sought to turn her experience into a vehicle to prevent childhood sexual abuse and heal survivors.
Lauren’s organization educates adults and children about sexual abuse topics through an in-school curriculum, a 24-hour Crisis Hotline and speaking engagements around the country. The organization also provides more than 4.5 million educational and awareness materials statewide through direct mail every year.
The ultimate goal is to prevent sexual abuse through awareness and education, and to help survivors heal with guidance and support.
“I survived, I’m ok … because it’s always ok to tell.” – Lauren Book
