Victim Advocate, Lavinia B. Masters, a native of Waco, Texas is an activist, author, certified coach, moderator, activist, consultant, inspirational public speaker, and facilitator.
Lavinia B. Masters struggled for many years emotionally, mentally, and psychologically after childhood sexual abuse and a brutal rape at the age of 13 years old before discovering and implementing seven steps to her true empowerment after sexual trauma through prayer and supplications.
For over 20 years Lavinia has worked tirelessly to raise awareness about sexual assault, promote and empower victims and advocate for justice by implementing and enforcing laws that protect victims. However, Lavinia’s greatest and most fulfilling battle has been the war on finding the beginning to the end of the nationwide accumulation of backlogged rape kits through DNA that sits on shelves just as hers did for over 20 years!
Lavinia is the recipient of the Joe Biden Presidential Lifetime Achievement Award, Edith Surgan Victim Activist Award Honorary Awardee, and TREC “Dreamers. Doers & Unsung Heroes” Award, George W. Bush Daily Point of Light Award, SSO Trailblazer Award, TFP Texas Trailblazer “Real Life” Hero Award, and the prestigious, OVC National Crimes Victim “Special Courage” Award in 2020.
Obviously, Lavinia’s story is still being written as on, September 1, 2019, House Bill 8, an omnibus rape kit reform bill; was given the namesake of “ The Lavinia Masters Act”, spearheaded by Rep Victoria Neave; so here is where we will place “to be continued” as Lavinia has yet to finish her journey of empowering, encouraging and enlightening victims after sexual trauma as Lavinia’s quote for life is “Everyone deserves the chance of justice and empowerment but most importantly to be healed after brokenness” and we as a society have yet to reach that goal.
