After spending three decades in journalism as a newspaper reporter, editor and publisher, David Lawrence, Jr. dedicated his life to a new mission: making sure every child has a real chance to succeed. A prominent advocate for children across the country, he helped found The Children’s Movement of Florida, an organization that launched in 2010 with the purpose of making Florida’s children, especially in their early years, the top priority for state investment.

In A Dedicated Life, David tells his story from his time at the Detroit Free Press and the Miami Herald to his “retirement” at age 56, when he transitioned into his new calling and began making significant strides in Florida’s Pre-K programs, parent skill-building and so much more.


During this live streaming event, David Lawrence, Jr. will be interviewed by our own Judge David Young, Family Division, Eleventh Judicial Circuit of Florida.


“This special book is the story of a good man who has lived an impressive, fascinating, full life dedicated to his family, his profession, his faith and his service to others, especially the youngest and most vulnerable among us.”
Jeb Bush, Florida’s 43rd Governor


“[A] highly principled man applying his talents and values in a transitioning America.”
Bob Graham, Florida’s 38th Governor and former Senator
