February 4-6

42 Hours for the 42 Million

Registration now open!

There are 42 million survivors of child sexual abuse living in the United States today. Seventy-five percent of child sexual abuse victims don’t tell anyone for at least a year. Forty-five percent do not tell for at least five years. Too many wait decades, or never disclose. For 42+ continuous hours in the rotunda of the Florida Capitol, advocates, legislators, state leaders, survivors, and community members join Senator Lauren Book and the Lauren’s Kids foundation to honor of the 42 million and advocate for societal and legislative change.


This year’s 42 Hours event will take place from February 4 – 6, 2020 at the Florida State Capitol. Sign up to walk a 15-minute shift below or join the effort from home – details below!
