Walk in My Shoes 2013
Walk in My Shoes 2013 finished April 23!
On March 19, Lauren Book embarked on her fourth annual 1,500-mile Walk in My Shoes education and awareness journey. This year’s Walk once again kicked off in the Florida Keys, crisscrossed the state traveling north and across the Panhandle, before it concluded in Tallahassee for the Rally in Tally on the steps of Florida’s Historic Capitol on April 23, 2013. This year’s rally was 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 highlighted 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. We released a series of educational web videos based on each topic featuring experts, survivors and a convicted child molester — click here to view the videos.
