FLORIDA STATE SENATOR LAUREN BOOK

"Being a survivor of child sexual abuse is something that absolutely colors your world – but you get to choose the color. My world has changed because of the abuse I have suffered, but I chose to work hard at healing, to then help others find hope and healing, and to protect children in ways I was unable to be kept safe."

(Lauren's Kids)

BLACK LIVES MATTER

Today and everyday, Starts With Youth stands in complete solidarity with the Black community and the Black Lives Matter movement. The ongoing systemic injustices that continue to target Black individuals is unacceptable and disturbing, and it is important that we come together as a community to address these daily realities. Starts With Youth actively condemns racism and recognizes that we must use our platform to educate ourselves and others, to encourage activism, and to uplift the voices of Black community members and organizations working towards important change. All those who have lost their lives or their loved ones to racial injustices deserved better than what our social system gave them, and it is time that change is made and Black people everywhere are given the chance at a better tomorrow. Please ensure that your activism stretches beyond social media, and take time to educate yourself and to demand systemic change through signing petitions, donating, and attending protests/vigils. Please visit this link, https://blacklivesmatters.carrd.co/, for information on ways to help, as well as additional resources. We cannot sit in silence.
