Sexual Abuse Victim Makes Strides Across the State to Raise Awareness

Published: 2/14/2012

From WEAR local news

Lauren Book overcame years of physical and sexual abuse.

 

She was in Pensacola today as part her 3rd Annual "Walk in her Shoes" campaign.

 

It's a 1500 mile walk across Florida to raise awareness of child sexual abuse.

 

She says a third of girls and 20 % of boys will become the victims of sexual abuse before they turn 18.

 

"This is happening and putting our head in the sand is not going to serve our children and we need to do all that we can to protect them."

 

Book does say 95 % of all abuse cases can be prevented with awareness and education.

 

She is also pushing for legislation that would require schools to report abuse or face a million dollar fine and a two-year ban from state funding.
