Emmy win for Lauren’s Kids

Senator Lauren Book's charity wins Emmy Award for child abuse prevention

by carlislewillard

Sen. Lauren Book‘s namesake charity, Lauren’s Kids – which helps survivors of childhood sexual abuse – won a Suncoast Regional Emmy Award for its videos helping parents and kids identify and avoid child predators.

The organization won the Emmy Award for best Informational/Instructional video and was the lone winner in that category.

“There is nothing more important than keeping our children safe,” Book said in a statement after the win. “One in three girls and one in five boys will become victims of child sexual abuse before the age of 18, but 95% of this abuse is preventable with education and awareness.”
