Lauren Lee Mitchell

writer | slam poet | speaker

Mitchell uses poetry in a powerful way: as advocacy. 

If you're looking to make a difference in the life of a child, please see Lauren's "Real Life Advocate" causes, below. She has chosen to partner with these organizations to bring awareness, healing, and help to children who need people to speak up on their behalf. Consider donating today! 


Not Just Words. Action.




Supporting children’s hospitals is a community effort. Because funds donated to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals stay in the community, when you donate you’re helping kids near you—maybe even the children in your own life.

Scholarships for Children of Incarcerated Parents

Lauren Mitchell's dear friend, Yasmine Arrington and also a child of an incarcerated parent, founded ScholarCHIPs to help children attend college after losing a parent to the prison system.

Over the years, ScholarCHIPs has made an incredible difference in the lives of ambitious young people everywhere. Circumstances should never prevent someone from attaining their dreams. Make sure to check out Yasmine's organization, which has given over $100,000 to children, here!
