Senator Lauren Book

Florida FUTURE CAUCUS, CO-CHAIR (D)

af1

Senator Lauren Book represents Florida’s District 32 in Broward Country. Lauren Book is a nationally acclaimed advocate for survivors of childhood sexual abuse. As a strong and active voice for abused children she has worked for tougher laws to make sure repeat violent offenders are kept off the streets and away from their intended victims.

She turned that energy, enthusiasm and passion into a higher calling and has entered a new phase of advocacy as a Florida Senator. Lauren learned at an early age that working through the legislature and helping shape the laws that protect those who are vulnerable and have no voice can be an effective way to impact change.

Senator Book holds several leadership positions as Democratic Leader Pro Tempore, Chair of the Environmental Preservation and Conservation Committee, and Vice Chair of the Appropriations Subcommittee on the Environment and Natural Resources. She also holds membership three other committees—Appropriations, Health Policy, and Rules—as well as in the Appropriations Subcommittee on Health and Human Services.
