Lauren Book Travels the World
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% 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.
She has been taking her message internationally, reaching out to survivors and advocates across the globe. She we talk about what she learned on her travels and how you can help prevent child abuse.
“I survived. I’m okay … because it’s always okay to tell.” – Lauren Book
