Walk In Lauren’s Shoes

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.” On March 19, Lauren embarked on her fourth annual 1,500-mile Walk in My Shoes education and awareness journey. This year’s Walk kicked off in the Florida Keys. Lauren will crisscross the state, traveling north and across the Panhandle, before concluding in Tallahassee for the Rally in Tally on the steps of Florida’s Historic Capitol on April 23, 2013. This year’s rally will be especially meaningful, as April is National Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and the national 2013 theme is focused on the prevention of child sexual abuse.

During the 2013 Walk, Lauren will be highlighting a different key aspect of child sexual abuse each week: Signs; Disclosure and Reporting; Predators: Grooming/Pedophile Tactics; Prevalence and Healing; Effects of Child Sexual Abuse; Youth-Serving Organizations; Education and Prevention. To learn more about Lauren and her annual statewide Walk in My Shoes, visit

We talk to Lauren from the road every week. This week’s topic: Grooming – how the abuser ingratiates themselves to hide their true intentions.
