About our Speaker

David Lawrence Jr. is a nationally renowned children’s advocate and the founder of the Children’s Movement of Florida, a non-partisan organization that seeks to make children a legislative priority.

Mr. Lawrence was a key figure in passing a statewide constitutional amendment to provide pre-k for all 4-year-olds. He holds 13 honorary doctorates from various institutions, including one from his alma mater, the University of Florida’s College of Journalism, and a degree from the Advanced Management program at the Harvard Business School. Prior to his work as a child advocate, Lawrence served as the publisher at the Miami Herald.

An endowed chair in early childhood studies is established in his name at the University of Florida Anita Zucker Center for Excellence in Early Childhood Studies. He was appointed by the Governor to the Board of Trustees of Florida A&M University in 2015.
