Luskin Quote: "We are here to celebrate International Women's day. I am blessed to have many of these wonderful women as friends, colleagues for a very long time. Others I was fortunate enough to interview. These women inspire me everyday, they are role models, mentors, volunteers. They are aware across the globe, here and abroad that millions of women and girls are struggling. They expose the misuse of power; which results in child brides, genital mutilation, sex trafficking, violence against women. They give of their time, vast talents to inspire conversations, provide services that ensure women and girls have more choices, be it better health care, access to education, shelter and counseling. They have answered the call in their unique ways and that is why we are celebrating them today." - Rae Luskin, "The Creative Activist" author, speaker, & coach.

Every story has power and purpose; so the artists, activists and gender-based violence survivors at The Voices and Faces Project, are using testimony to change the way that the world responds to violence and abuse. We're not speaking out because it's healing. We're speaking out because silence is the enemy of change. $500 provides one scholarship.

Book Testimonial...by Donna Fishman, MPH
Experienced non profit and public health professional, strategic thinker and project manager Donna Fishman, MPH is currently co chair of Jewish Coalition Against Sex Trafficking
"Rae Luskin in an inspiring leader. The Creative Activist is a testament not only to the 36 individuals highlighted, but to Rae's ability to listen to peoples' stories, share the wisdom and advice in a way that is not overwhelming for readers—but instead motivating to us to heed the 36 calls to action, reflect in the journaling, and then put the book down and get creative AND active. I have known Rae since the early 2000's through the National Council of Jewish Women. I'm honored that she includes in the Creative Activist her leadership in NCJW as president and her foresight in hiring the first staff person, and that was me. Under Rae's leadership and mentorship, we were able to attract young women to become activists to improve the lives of women, children and families. She learned about and brought to the Chicago area the idea of Luggage for Freedom project--a community service initiative that donates gently used luggage, sheets, towels and toiletries to women who are transitioning from domestic violence shelters to new lives as free women. More than 500 people (men, women and children) have volunteered over the past 12 years with this program. Rae had a mission- to help women who have been victims of domestic violence, and she made that mission a cornerstone of her presidency of NCJW and has helped over 1000 domestic violence survivors. She is an example of an ordinary person doing extraordinary things. The people Rae interviewed for the Creative Activist talked about "we" vs "I"—this is what we did..... because no one can make social change alone; we all need partners, collaborators, those who share our mission, and the "doers." We all can do this work, and I thank Rae for giving me the inspiration to continue my social activism and take the time to reflect on my work, and look to future "chapters of my life" and how I can continue to give back and help others. Thank you Rae Luskin for this practical and inspiring book."
