Every year, Lauren embarks on a 1,500-mile “Walk in My Shoes” walk across the state of Florida to empower survivors, educate communities from Key West to Tallahassee and advocate for legislative change. Since its inception in 2010, Walk in My Shoes has truly become a movement, with milestones including the following:
- More than 6,000 miles logged
- Tens of thousands of walkers – including thousands of survivors – have joined Lauren on the journey
3,000+ local, statewide and national media stories
- Nearly two dozen laws changed to better support survivors and protect children and families
As much as we’ve done and as far as we’ve come, there is still more left to do in the fight for a safer Florida. Join the movement to protect childhood…come walk with us!
